Bulgaria will continue to work for an effective UN, prepared to meet the needs of humanity in the 21st century, Bulgarian President Rumen Radev said in a video address to the participants in the 76th session of the UN General Assembly, which is held in New York.

"Unprecedented global challenges require all countries to support more effective and coordinated action by the international community. Multilateral diplomacy is the key to our common future and there is no alternative," President Radev said. He pointed out the need to increase the security of supply chains, critical infrastructure, energy networks and preparedness for pandemics and natural disasters. As an EU Member State, Bulgaria supports the actions of the international community aimed at finding lasting solutions related to refugees from Afghanistan and to support for the countries that host a large number of them, Radev also said.
