Prime Minister Comments on Issues Figuring on EU Agenda

Prime Minister Comments on Issues Figuring on EU Agenda

13.12.2019
December 13 (BTA correspondent Nikolay Jeliazkov) - Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borissov, who is in Brussels for a European Council meeting on December 12 and 13, commented on a wide range of issues on the EU agenda during a news briefing in the Belgian capital Friday. Discussing the new extension of the sanctions against Russia, approved on Thursday, Borissov said: "Quite good things were said about Russia yesterday, unlike before. Several steps are being made in the right direction. I have never heard such optimistic things before. But nothing is finished yet, so the sanctions remain." He quoted politicians as saying that the United States has invested 35 billion dollars in the Russian economy over the period of the sanctions. "Whether it is true or not, I don't know. I am just saying what other colleagues have reported," Borissov said. The results of the early general elections in the UK are good news, according to him. The outcome of the ballot means that the UK Parliament will be unable to continue to block the Brexit agreement, Borissov commented. He noted that Bulgaria will not lose any money as the UK stops contributing to the EU budget. The new EU rules for international road transport can be challenged jointly by multiple claimants at the Court of Justice of the European Union, the Bulgarian Prime Minister went on to say. He added that several member states have supported Bulgaria in resisting the adopted changes. He argued: "On the one hand, the EU is trying to reduce environmental pollution, but on the other hand, it is adopting rules which will entail an increase in harmful emissions, because international haulage trucks will have to return often to the country of registration. The discussion on the topic has not ended and we cannot allow it to end this way. We will file a lawsuit." Borissov noted that West European countries, which are particularly enthusiastic about the new rules, have relocated their polluting businesses to Asia. Concerning the European Commission's strategic vision for achieving a climate-neutral economy by 2050, Borissov said the intention will be carried out, because the EU is very determined. "We need to think about the future of coal," he noted. "We have 30 years to go, and we have to say what will happen after that." According to Borissov, everyone in the EU believes that the migration agreement with Turkey should be continued and no one is talking about an embargo on arms sales to Ankara. "I told my colleagues in Greece and Cyprus that they should find instruments to sort things out by themselves, because, although we support them in every way, Turkey is playing a crucial role in the region right now," he said.
