SOFIA, December 8. /TASS/. Bulgaria’s Socialist Party (BSP) insists on resumption of inter-parliamentary dialogue between the European Union and Russia. A relevant initiative was referred to the Bulgarian parliament by the BSP Left Bulgaria coalition on Tuesday.
"The National Assembly [parliament] should bind the prime minister and the foreign minister to submit to the European Council and the Foreign Affairs Council an initiative to cross all lawmakers out from European sanction lists and agree on similar actions by the Russian side," the party said.
Bulgaria’s Socialists insist that it is necessary to enliven contacts between legislative bodies of the European Union and Russia with an aim of normalizing relations. "The Bulgarian parliament believes that a ban on free movement of lawmakers on the part of executive authorities on the national and European level is inexpedient," the draft resolution that is to be discussed by the lawmakers says.
According to BSP, its draft resolution is in full compliance with the country’s constitution and parliamentary regulations. The date for parliamentary consideration of the draft has not yet been appointed.
