Bulgarian President Comments on Air Strikes in Syria

The President of Bulgaria, Rumen Radev, commented on the situation in Syria when asked by a student during a discussion of the Youth Economic Forum in the University of National and World Economy.

Radev said that the air strike on Syria hurt the United Nations, an organization that’s often ignored according to the president. For those that may not know, Radev is the former commander of the Bulgarian Air Force. According to him, the recent airstrike on Syria has negligible military significance, a half-a-billion-dollar cost and a large political impact on the countries involved.

 The President also compared the conflict in Syria to the recent war in Lybia, saying that the same tactics cannot be applied, as Syria has the support of the Russian military. The president is quoted as saying: “We can’t apply strategies from past conflicts in that situation, as we can face more challenges.” Radev called for fewer weapons and more discussions. Another problem that the President warned about was the possibility of an escalation of war due to human mistakes or incorrect engagement.

 A recent Gallup study showed that Bulgarians are fairly pessimistic of a world peace continuing in the near future. Our country has also contributed to the weapons shipped to the Middle East. The demand was so big that Bulgaria had to import arms from Belarus.
