Bulgaria will fulfill 100 per cent of Brussels' recommendations until the European Commission publishes its next interim report on the country's progress under the Cooperation and Verification Mechanism in the field of justice and home affairs, Prime Minister Boyko Borisov said on Tuesday, as quoted by the Government Information Service.
He was speaking to leaders and other members of EU diplomatic missions in Sofia during a working meeting in the residence of Belgian Ambassador Mark Michielsen, whose country currently holds the rotating EU Presidency. The meeting was also attended by Justice Minister Margarita Popova.
The Prime Minister said that his cabinet has a political will and a commitment to Bulgarian voters to complete the reforms in all fields. "This is the only way to achieve more quickly the results which will allow my country to meet EU membership requirements and expectations," he said.
Borissov noted that the pension system reform has ended successfully, and related changes ensure good financial stability and security. "Legislative changes are to be made for the judicial system. We are also reforming the public health sector. Resistance comes mostly because we are trying to enforce discipline in the various sectors," he said.
