Bulgarian President Calls for More Cooperation With Israel

The President of Bulgaria, Rumen Radev, called for better two-sided cooperation with Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Radev praised Israel for its well-developed IT industry and expressed hope that Bulgaria will follow their example. The statements were made during the last day of the President’s visit to Israel.

“We need more pragmatism in our relationship”

Radev commented that Bulgaria and Israel have more room to develop their partnership, pointing to the $150 million stock exchange between the two countries as not being enough.

Another point driven by the Bulgarian President was the fight against terrorism, as the biggest terrorist act in Bulgaria’s modern history was on Sarafovo Airport in Burgas when a suicide bomber speculated to have ties to Hezbollah killed 6 Israeli tourists and injured 32 other people.

Radev also pointed to the mutual history Israel and Bulgaria shared due to the Salvation of the Bulgarian Jews during the Holocaust, an event that had its 75th anniversary.
