PM Restates Partnership with Bulgarian Nation


Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu welcomed the visit of his Bulgarian counterpart on Tuesday, and made note of the ongoing partnership between Israel and Bulgaria from the mid 1930s to this very day.

The PM said, “There is a great friendship between the Bulgarian nation and the Jewish nation. First, there are many Israelis with Bulgarian roots… Second, we will never forget the bravery of many Bulgarians during the Holocaust. At the height of the Jewish genocide… they proclaimed, ‘We refuse to cooperate with the mass murder of the Jewish people.’”
