Bulgaria takes over revolving EU presidency
"Bulgaria will take charge of the EU presidency at a key moment for the union ... May the slogan 'strength in unity' guide us," conservative and pro-EU Prime Minister Boyko Borisov wrote in a post on Facebook.
"I am confident that we shall work with success on our priorities, on continuity," added Borisov.
The presidency, which rotates between different EU member states, will give the European Union's poorest member state the opportunity to chair meetings and set agendas, as the bloc grapples with the record influx of migrants, management of its borders, rising populism and Britain's EU divorce. ■
