Weapons purchased from Macedonia are properly stored

Weapons from Macedonia are stored in compliance with the requierements of Bulgarian laws and the importing company, while the Macedonian selling firm gave consent to the Bulgarian buyer to produce or sell the concerned goods to third parties, reads the report of national Bulgarian security service Bezbednost. The three prior deliveries of weapons from the Macedonian Defense Ministry to Bulgaria were conducted in compliance with the import decision of June 2005 by the inter-sectorial committee on export control and non-proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, as well as the decision of the Macedonian police for transport of the goods to the warehouses of the Bulgarian purchasing company. Moreover, the Macedonian firm was obliged to escort the load until it leaves the country's territory, reads the report.
The police seized past Thursday weapons during a routine control of three trucks with Bulgarian register plates. The firearms included 300 pieces of machine guns caliber 7,62mm with 300 stands, and 33 mortars caliber 120mm. The truck drivers have been detained.
