Bulgarian President calls for unity in solving refugee crisis in Europe

Bulgarian President Rossen Plevneliev has called for united efforts to address the refugee crisis in Europe.

Plevneliev was speaking in Bulgaria’s second city Plovdiv on September 6, Unification Day, marking the 1885 joining of the short-lived state of Eastern Roumelia to the rest of Bulgaria.

He said that a solution to the refugee crisis could not be achieved by a country individually, but Europe should unite its efforts.

“Refugees are people like us. They are fathers and mothers, engineers and teachers. They are human beings in need. They are escaping from the horrors of war and the terror machine of the ‘Islamic state’.

Europe could solve crises, whether Greek, Ukrainian, refugee or others, “only when we are together. Europe is strong when it is united,” Plevneliev said.
