Top Officials from Bulgaria, Greece, Romania and Serbia Discussed Reopening of Borders

BELGRADE, Serbia — Top officials from Bulgaria, Greece, Romania and Serbia have discussed reopening of borders and economic recovery amid a slowdown in the coronavirus outbreak.

A statement from Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic’s office says participants at Tuesday’s video meeting agreed that opening of borders would help speed up the economic revival after the virus lockdown.

Vucic says Serbia agrees borders can open on June 1 with implementation of precautions against the coronavirus. The statement quotes Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis saying Greek borders will open for tourists on June 15.

The meeting is part of a regional initiative among the four countries aimed at boosting cooperation. Bulgaria, Greece and Romania are members of the European Union, while Serbia is seeking entry.
