Bulgarian diplomacy skillfully demonstrates its ability to defend the national interest in times of dynamic changes and challenges, this country’s President Rumen Radev said at a reception at the Boyana Residence on the occasion of the Diplomatic Service Day.

The development of a number of European policies and the efforts aimed to implement the European Union’s priorities for digital and green transition are among the achievements of Bulgaria’s diplomatic service, noted President Radev.

As a primary task for Bulgarian diplomats, Bulgaria’s head of state Radev highlighted the defense of the interests of Bulgarian communities abroad. President Radev also called for continued support for accelerated EU integration of the Western Balkan countries, in strict compliance with the Copenhagen accession criteria.
