“My presence on behalf of the state bears eloquent testimony to the fact that our policy with regard to the Bulgarian minorities will continue stable and consistent,” said Vice President Iliana Yotova at the opening of a documentary exhibition dedicated to the burning down of Bosilegrad, now in the Western outlands, Serbia, 100 years ago. The fact that we are here in Bosilegrad shows that the memory of the innocent victims who lost their lives in the burning of Bosilegrad 100 years ago has not faded, Yotova added. In her words the future is in good neighborliness, in the European family of nations of which Bulgaria has been a member for 10 years, while Serbia has started its EU accession negotiations.
