Heads of state and government of the countries which joined the EU after 2004 are attending the event hosted by Prime Minister of Poland, Mateusz Morawiecki.
Bulgaria will continue to work transparently and responsibly for the future of European citizens and for the implementation of common EU policies - economic growth, social cohesion and the prospect for young people, security and stability, the development of the digital economy, the prime minister said in his speech. "The key word today is ‘security’. Without security and stability, European values are difficult to defend,” Prime Minister Borissov said, stressing that Bulgaria does an excellent job protecting the European borders; tightening the control at all borders on a pan-European level is of utmost importance. He further said that Bulgaria will continue to insist on solidarity in sharing the burden of migration as no member state should be left alone in dealing with the challenge. "Schengen is an achievement that we must preserve. Its future should be a symbol of a united and unified Europe," Boyko Borissov said, adding that full membership in the Schengen Area remains a key priority for the country.
He went on saying that Europe would not be a completed project if the countries of the Western Balkans were not part of the EU. "Bulgaria put all its energy to make progress in this area during its rotating presidency of the Council of the EU. We are pleased that the current Romanian Presidency and the future Croatian one will continue to implement this priority," Prime Minister Boyko Borissov told the EU leaders.
