Bulgaria said Saturday it was ready to boost patrols and finish a fence along its southeastern frontier with Turkey in an effort to hold off any new influx of migrants.The pledge comes as Turkey is in separate rows with Bulgaria and the EU, raising worries Ankara could allow a rush of asylum seekers across the border. Bulgaria is angry at Turkey's open support for Dost, a party for the ethnic Turkish minority, which is running in the Bulgarian general elections for the first time.This could become a major problem for Bulgaria, which shares a 270-kilometer (165-mile) border with Turkey and would be on the front-line of a new migrant wave.
