Bulgarian leaders send condolences to counterparts in Skopje over fatal floods

Bulgaria’s President and its Prime Minister have sent condolences to their counterparts in Skopje after the catastrophic weather this past weekend that left 22 people dead, dozens injured and that caused widespread damage.

In a message to his counterpart Gjorge Ivanov, Bulgarian President Rossen Plevneliev said that he had received the news of the floods in Skopje with deep sorrow.

Tragedies of this kind “remind us how important it is to be united in difficult times,” Plevneliev said in his cable to Ivanov.

In recent years, the Bulgarian people had also felt the wrath of nature and in these difficult days for its neighbouring country and friend, Bulgarians empathised with the anguish after the disaster that had befallen the Republic of Macedonia, Plevneliev said.
