Bulgarian parliament backs EU, NATO position on Crimea

World Bulletin / News Desk

All parties in the Bulgarian parliament have come to the agreement that the March 16 referendum which saw Crimea opt to leave Ukraine for annexation with Russia was illegitimate.

Bulgarian President Rosen Plevenliev met with the country's Council for National Security last week regarding the Crimean crisis, where they collectively agreed to stand alongside the EU and NATO on the matter.

Bulgaria "deems the March 16 referendum in Crimea illegitimate, as it is a violation of international law and cannot be recognized", President Plevneliev said.

According to Balkan Insight, Plevneliev also said he would support the political and economic pacts in the Association Agreement between the EU and Ukraine after the May 25 Ukrainian elections.

Only the ultra-nationalist Attack Party, which has been campaigning for recognition of the referendum, refused to back the parliament's position.
