Bulgaria EU Commissioner: Tension between Sofia, Brussels Eases

Right after the European Commission encouraged Bulgaria for the way it tackles organized crime and corruption, Kristalina Georgieva, the Bulgarian commissioner for humanitarian aid, has commented that the crisis in the relations between Sofia and Brussels is subsiding.

"The European Commission noted that fact that political will in Bulgaria gets already translated into actions," Georgieva said in an interview for Sega daily.

She advised the Bulgarian authorities to have an open and active dialogue with the European institutions and forecast that 2011 will be "absolutely critical" for Bulgaria.
