Bulgaria to Seek End of Post-Monitoring Dialogue with Council of Europe by End-2016

Bulgarian Foreign Minister Daniel Mitov said he had again raised the issue of an end to Bulgaria's post-monitoring dialogue with the Council of Europe (CoE). Mitov talked to Bulgarian journalists here on Monday evening, where he is taking part in the winter session of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe in his capacity as Chairman of the CoE Committee of Ministers.
"We are the only EU Member State which is still subject to such mechanism, and considering the reforms we are carrying out now, a clear discussion should start on an end to this phase for Bulgaria," Mitov said. "I am prepared to work with all parliamentary groups so as to achieve the maximum effect, because this requires the efforts of the whole State and above all of the MPs. I think we will find a way to reach agreement on a very serious debate at the CoE Parliamentary Assembly on dropping this mechanism. The next report is due not earlier than at the end of this year, which gives us time to focus our efforts so that this will be the last such report. I don't say this is 100 per cent certain, but this is the ambition," the Foreign Minister explained.
