Bulgaria to upgrade counter-terrorist infrastructure

Bulgaria has to upgrade its counterterrorism infrastructure so as to be able to counter attacks such as the Burgas one, Benjamin Weinthal was quoted as saying by Focus Agency. He is a fellow researcher at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies in Washington DC.

Weinthal has added that while visiting Bulgaria he was left with the impression that the country was unprepared for the attack. In the expert’s words, the existing possibility for Hezbollah to have a developed and well-functioning infrastructure in Europe leads to the organization of attacks such as the one in Bulgaria.

According to Mathew Levitt, director of the Program on Counterterrorism and Intelligence at the Washington Institute, Europe would make a big mistake in case it fails to admit the depth of Hezbollah’s commitment with Iran. He also said that Bulgaria should not fear any acts of revenge in the aftermath of the announcement of results from the Bulgarian investigation.
