Ivan Nikolov, Bosilegrad: The Bulgarian minority in Serbia has been seen as a threat to the state for a century14 November 2017 | 16:05 | FOCUS News Agency
“The arrest of the Bulgarian doctors was the last straw, there are tons of other problems. In the 21st century, young people are dying for lack of access to basic healthcare,” Nikolov said.
"Serbia does not have a clear foreign policy orientation, it is caught between Brussels and Moscow. Laws in a society should defend people’s right to healthcare, mother tongue training, freedom of speech, movement and thought,” Nikolov said, urging the Bulgarian state and Bulgarian politicians to step up to the plate.

Sofia. The issue of Bulgarians in Western Outlands was brought up after 1989, but unfortunately Bulgaria has had no consistent policy over the years, Krasimir Uzunov, President of FOCUS News Agency and Radio, told BTV’s morning show in connection with the detention of three Bulgarian medics in the Serbian city of Bosilegrad. What happened there was not an isolated case, according to Krasimir Uzunov. Without the quick intervention of Foreign Affairs Minister Ekaterina Zaharieva, the consulate in Nis was unlikely to react, he commented. He warned that the Western Outlands would likely become depopulated in the near future, and Albanians could replace Bulgarians there.Open in new tab
