Europe: Bulgarians are our lucky chance

Date: 06.11.2005

In Spain we are lucky to have many immigrants from Bulgaria, told to our MPs President of the European Parliament, Josep Borrell. In his opinion, Bulgaria is not a source of manpower to the European Union. The country is also facing demographic problem - the population is ageing and you will soon have a crying need for guest workers, Borrell said. He added that the EP staunchly supports Bulgaria's EU membership.

After the declaration of independence in 1908 this will be the most significant event in the modern history of Bulgaria. Borrell commended Geoffrey Van Orden, rapporteur for Bulgaria in the EP, and called him "Mister Europe." According to him, without Bulgaria and Romania Europe will not be complete. Borrell qualified Bulgaria's EU accession in 2007 as a "perfectly attainable goal."

It is necessary to explain to the citizens of Spain that your admission to the EU is not an act of generosity, said EP President. He advised the Bulgarians to shed fears of negative emotions within the EU. There's no anti-Bulgarian plot or insistence to postpone the country's EU membership. These are nothing but ghosts, he said. The fall of the Berlin Wall restored the national spirit, the emblems of which are Botev and Levski, Borrell said further in his speech in the plenary hall. Later on, he expressed EP's concern over the trial of the Bulgarian nurses in Libya. "We hope that the court's decision will bring to end this heart-rending human drama, he said.

Josep Borrell had talks with Bulgaria's Premier, Sergey Stanishev.
