President Radev Meets US Sanctions Coordination Office Head O’Brien

Bulgaria’s modernisation requires transparency in the legislative process and the effective work of the justice system. This is what President Rumen Radev said at a meeting with Head of the Office of Sanctions Coordination at the U.S. Department of State Jim O’Brien. The meeting, which took place at the presidential institution, was attended by Vice President Iliana Iotova, as well as US and UK Ambassadors Herro Mustafa and Rob Dixon, the President’s press secretariat reported.
During the talks, the sanctions imposed on Bulgarian citizens were discussed as part of US and UK actions to protect their financial systems.
Head of State Rumen Radev expressed his gratitude for the international support this country receives in the fight against corruption. He also stressed that Bulgarian society expects the next National Assembly to make the adoption of anti-corruption legislation a priority, as well as an active partnership and exchange of information between Bulgaria’s law enforcement institutions and its allies in the fight against corruption.
