SOFIA, January 30, 21:59 /ITAR-TASS/. Russia will hold the exemplary Olympic Games, Bulgarian Prime Minister Plamen Oresharski said in an exclusive interview with Itar-Tass. The Bulgarian premier will take part in the opening ceremony of the Olympics.
“I must say l’m much impressed with the way the Olympics are being organized, with the preparations for the Olympics and with the infrastructure built,” Oresharski said.
“I have no doubt Russia will hold the exemplary Olympic Games. It’s a pity that the programme of my stay in Sochi does not permit me to stay in the Olympic capital longer. I will only be able to attend the opening ceremony of the Olympics and then I must leave for Bulgaria. But I will continue being interested in everything taking place in Sochi and will be closely watching the competitions every spare minute on the TV,” Oresharski said.
The Bulgarian premier has said he enjoys the opportunity to take part in multilateral functions and in meetings with colleagues, state leaders.
“I am sure the Olympics will be a heartening event for me, as this will be the first time l will be present at the Olympic Game’s opening,” Oresharski stressed. “I hope very much to have a meeting with the Russian president,” he said. Russia and Bulgaria “always have topics to discuss,” he noted.
“I am sure the Olympics will be held the best way. I wish success and the realization of all the plans to those who organize the Games and I wish to all the spectators to enjoy watching the Olympics,” he said.
