TRAVEL GAZETTE – Bulgarian President Rosen Plevneliev here on Thursday said that the terrorists, who blew up a bus with Israeli tourists at Burgas airport in 2012, would soon be brought to justice.
“We know who the perpetrators are, and we will bring them to justice,” Plevneliev said at a joint press conference with his visiting Israeli counterpart Reuven Rivlin.
“We also know those who stood behind them, and they will be brought to justice too,” Plevneliev said.
The chief prosecutor of Bulgaria assured him it was “a matter of days,” Plevneliev said.
A bomber blew himself up near a bus packed with Israeli tourists at the Burgas airport car park on July 18, 2012, killing six people and wounding more than 30 others.
Plevneliev said the two countries were making every effort to ensure such tragedies are not repeated.
Cooperation between Bulgaria and Israel in the field of security and defense was at a very high level, he said.
Meanwhile, the two countries should encourage the implementation of more joint projects in sectors like information and communication technologies, food production and energy, as well as the tourism industry, Plevneliev said.
In turn, Rivlin said they would fiercely fight against terrorists and its supporters — wherever they are trying to reach, and wherever they try to hide.
