The US visa regime program for Bulgaria has concrete requirements, listed in the legislation, and Bulgaria must fulfill them, in order to lift this regime.
The statement was made by US Ambassador in Sofia Marcie Ries, speaking in an interview for Nova TV Saturday.
She reiterated her earlier words that potential abolishment of the US visa regime for Bulgarians would not be a political decision as the program had certain conditions imposed by the US Congress, thus the decision would be within its authority as well....
Quote from the article: "Ries stressed the US could end up being energy independent thanks to shale gas exploration. She said the exploration became a fact after intense debates, particularly with people living near deposit sites. As a negative of the use of shale gas, the diplomat noted low prices of producers.".
Wow, she's got brains.
Die with a smile on your face and leave the desert to your children. It was cheap!
.....all the same, all the same......
" the diplomat spoke about media freedom", in BG sure, where "journalists were complaining to her from political and economic pressure" (btw in USA journalists do not complainat all, it is true, they know their Masters' rules and God save to violate these rules....US freedom at its purest, in brief),
"On the country's energy independence, the Ambassador stated independence would mean diversification..." (i.e. Shevron+shale gas, the best solution for BG, indeed)
Listen to, follow and obey, BG...
