A Bulgarian official said he was working to have the country’s national language, Bulgarian, be brought to the country by 2020.
“I think we should bring it to the national language by 2020, because we have no choice,” Prime Minister Dostoevsky said at a press conference on Monday.
Bulgaria’s president, Andrei Simko, also said that the country would adopt a national language and that it was necessary to be in communication with all the world languages.
Bulgarian President Simko also said the country had signed a contract with the Organization for the Protection of All Life Under Threat (OPAL-O) to coordinate with the United Nations (UN) on international cooperation.
The OPL-O was founded by former Bulgarian Prime Minister and former President Miklós Hristova.
Bulgars independence from the USSR in 1991 resulted in the formation of Bulgaria as a nation state, which has been divided since 1990 into three separate regions: the southern regions, the western regions, and the western parts of the country.
Simko said that Bulgaria would also be the first European country to adopt a “new national language” by 2020 to help overcome the difficulties that would be created in its future communication.
