Bulgaria supports NATO accession talks with Bosnia, Macedonia, Georgia

Speaking at the North Atlantic Council in Foreign Ministers’ session in Brussels on Friday, Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Ekaterina Zaharieva said Bulgaria supports NATO’s open door policy and believes that it is time to put under way the Membership Action Plan for Bosnia and Herzegovina, Macedonia and Georgia.
This is important for regional security and stability, Zaharieva said. She said the debate was of great importance to Bulgaria, adding that putting this topic on Friday’s agenda was a very important sign. The matter of launching the Membership Action Plan for Bosnia and Herzegovina may be left for the NATO Summit in July.
The Bulgarian Foreign Minister said NATO’s support for the international coalition fighting the Islamic State should continue because some radicalization and terrorism issues still remain. The foreign ministers share the view that when the time comes, partnership with Libya should strengthen, she said.
