Bulgaria hails Croatia referendum results on EU

Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borisov has welcomed the results of Sunday’s Croatian referendum in which approximately 66% of the voters supported the country’s EU membership.

“This positive outcome of the referendum is a result of the efforts put by the Croatian society and political leaders on the country’s way to join the EU,” Borisov said on Monday.

“I am glad that our European family will reach 28 members in 2013, with one more of them being from Southeaster Europe. Croatia’s EU membership is an encouraging signal for the countries from the Western Balkans,” Borisov declared.
