Minister Rossen Jeliazkov: Irrespective of political differences, institutions have to work for common national interest


Irrespective of political differences, the institutions have to work for the common national interest, said the Minister of Transport, Information Technology and Communications Rossen Jeliazkov at a meeting with MEPs. The Bulgarian representatives from all groups in the European Parliament declared that will work together, in a coordinated way and with common massages.

“The protest of the hauliers is not a form of pressure, but a demonstration of the firm and explicit message against the division of Europe into central and peripheral countries”, underlined Minister Jeliazkov.

A series of meetings is planned within the framework of the day - with Commissioner Violeta Bulc and EP Transport Committee Chair Karima Delli. Minister Jeliazkov will also speak with the rapporteur Ismail Eartug, who re-submitted the proposal to return the vehicles home. The Minister commented that the deletion of this text is a must and cannot be accepted as a compromise. He added that he would put this issue to Ismail Ertug pointedly.
