    The fight over the Mobility Package is a very long one and it is too early to tell whether it has been won or lost. When it is all said and done, it will most likely be neither of those things because we are talking about a compromise. What we need to do is get as good law provisions as possible. It is clear that the industry is going to undergo reforms. So we can safely say that this is among the bad periods we have had in this fight, but it is not the last, the MEP said in an interview to Monitor.

    Bulgaria compares favourably to other European countries in tackling coronavirus spread. We are handling the situation two to four times better than the global average. The number of infections is two times lower, while the number of deaths is four times lower as ratios per one million people. Bulgarians are a pretty disciplined nation and seem to grasp the seriousness of the situation. We have turned out to be much more disciplined than the Italians and the Spanish, who underestimated the threat.

    The vote of European citizens will show what Europe we all want to live in, what route we want to follow. We should not miss the point that all regulations and directives coming from the EU are legal acts adopted and approved by the European Commission and the MEPs. When we cast our votes, we must know that who will represent us in the European Parliament depends on our decisions, said Head of the European Commission's Representation in Bulgaria.

    The political support for our Schengen accession has been voiced many times. As long as six or seven years ago we met all technical accession requirements, and ever since the European Commission has repeatedly suggested that Bulgaria should join the Schengen area. But still some Member States refuse to put the observance of European laws and rules above the internal political pressure they experience.

    The referendum's result was absolutely predictable although I expected the voter turnout to be slightly higher. In fact, this shows that rather divergent processes are running among different groups of the population in Macedonia. In this case we have two proclaimed winners. More than likely, it means that the agony of Macedonia will be prolonged.We made a fundamental mistake believing that Euro-Atlantic integration means automatic elimination of the existing problems.
