No sanctions of any kind would have a positive impact on Bulgaria or any EU Member State, the Prime Minister says
“I believe that the dialogue would lead to relatively quick solutions to regulate at least the main open questions at this stage”, Prime Minister Oresharski said after today's extraordinary meeting of the European Council in Brussels. The Prime Minister described the joint statement of European states and government leaders as positive. “The statement outlines [the need] for a dialogue, the leading parties in which should be Kiev and Moscow. The EU should be involved in various ways to stimulate this process, but not get directly involved”, the Prime Minister said. He added that the EU had expressed readiness to participate in efforts to de-escalate tensions. “The belief is that the solution should be reached through talks between Russia and Ukraine”, Mr. Oresharski said. According to him, it would be good if talks began at the next European Council.
