Bulgaria's EU presidency officially launched in Sofia

Bulgaria's six-month rotating Presidency of the Council of the European Union (EU) was officially launched here on Thursday evening at a special ceremony attended by the highest local and EU officials.

"Europe is too big to be monolithic but too small to be divided," Bulgarian President Rumen Radev said at the ceremony held in the Ivan Vazov National Theatre.

Therefore, the motto of Bulgaria's EU Presidency is "United We Stand Strong", Radev said.

Bulgaria has taken up the Presidency in a difficult time, he said.

"I am convinced that when the problems affect everyone, the key is in realism and solidarity efforts," Radev said.

Donald Tusk, President of the European Council, said it is a good thing that one of the priorities of the Bulgarian presidency is the future of the Western Balkans.
