When asked about recent events in Bulgaria, European Commission spokesman Christian Wiegand said the EU always claimed peaceful protests were a fundamental right in any democracy. We support the right to peaceful protest. In the EU we have our own positions and we do not react because of positions expressed by others, said the head of the press service Eric Mamer commenting on the statement of the US Embassy in Sofia that the demonstrations and protests were a sign of a prosperous and vibrant civil society. We have a clear position on the rule of law and we have pointed this out on the occasion of the events in Bulgaria, Mamer also said. On Monday, he declined to comment on events in Bulgaria.
