Bulgarian President Visits Serbia

Bulgaria’s President Rumen Radev took part in a joint press-conference with Serbia’s President Aleksandar Vučić.

Radev called for cooperation on the Balkans and supporting “the European perspective” and for improvement in the lives of the Bulgarian ethnic minority in Serbia.

The Bulgarian President is on a two-day visit to Serbia.

On the second day, he and President Vučić will make the first-ever joint visit to the Bulgarian minority in Dimitrovgrad. On the topic, Radev stated: “We expect our national minority to experience the strong support of Serbia’s minority laws, and for a real change in the daily life of our countrymen.” More specifically, the Bulgarian President called for ethnic Bulgarians to have easier access to healthcare.

The two national leaders also discussed potential cooperation in the field of education and the teaching of Bulgarian language to the ethnic minority in Serbia.

Vučić promised to put a heavier focus on the transborder region and to finance Bulgarian-language media outlets in the country. Serbia's President also underlined the excellent two-sided dialogue between Bulgaria and Serbia: “These accomplishments are especially important because they bring our two peoples closer. It's of great importance to us to look to the future and not to the past, to commemorate our fallen heroes together and to turn a new page.”

During the conference, Radev expressed Bulgaria’s readiness to support Serbia in its attempts to enter the EU: “The European perspective was the leading topic of discussion during our meeting and in the future, Serbia can rely on our support – to work together for the perspective of the Balkans and the European Union.”

The Bulgarian President expressed that Serbia can enter the EU by 2025, despite the ambitiousness of that goal.
