Bulgaria will restore the fence on its Turkish border which existed during the Cold War to prevent animals with food-and-mouth disease (FMD) from entering, the government has decided.

Currently, there is a fence covering a mere 28.5 km of the 209.5 km border. The existing fence will be repaired and a new one will be constructed to cover all the rest.

The governors of the three regions through which the territory of the fence will pass – those of Burgas, Haskovo and Yambol, will issue orders for its construction. It will be financed by the country's Finance Ministry and facilitated by the Ministry of Agriculture.

The new fence must be completed by October 2011, as FMD spreads faster when temperatures are low.

After 12 years without FMD cases in Bulgaria, in late December, the first outbreak was detected near the Southeastern village of Kosti. Up to now, six villages in Southeast Bulgaria have registered FMD outbreaks.
