Racist party storms Erdogan-Stanishev press meeting
The joint press conference of Bulgarian Prime Minister Sergei Stanishev and Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan --which was scheduled to be held after their tete-a-tete meeting-- was cancelled because of a move by the deputies of racist and extreme nationalist ATAKA party.

ATAKA chairman Volen Siderov, together with five deputies, arrived in the hall where the press conference was scheduled to be held.

He wanted to ask questions to Erdogan about assets of Bulgarians who migrated from Thrace as well as 1915 incidents; and also a question to Stanishev about their demonstrations which were prevented by police.

Upon insistence of Siderov and deputies to stay in the hall, Erdogan-Stanishev joint press conference was cancelled.

After the cancellation, Siderov and deputies left the hall.
