Everyone would lose if UK left EU, Bulgarian President tells Cameron

It is in the interest of the whole European Union that the United Kingdom remains part of the European project, and everyone would lose if the UK left it, Bulgarian head of state President Rossen Plevneliev told British prime minister David Cameron during talks in Sofia on December 4.

Cameron was in the Bulgarian capital for talks with his Bulgarian counterpart Boiko Borissov, with whom he discussed UK proposals for changes to his country’s relationship with the EU and also security and migration issues, and was due on December 5 to visit the Bulgarian-Turkish border.

Cameron, the first UK prime minister to visit Bulgaria in 16 years, said that the UK wanted to be part of a reformed EU that is efficient and competitive. Plevneliev and Cameron called for open and constructive dialogue within the EU, to discuss the UK’s reform proposals.
