The latest European Commission monitoring report on Bulgaria is disastrous, according to Bulgaria's former Foreign Minister Solomon Passy.

The report under the Cooperation and Verification Mechanism shows Bulgaria is heading for catastrophe, said the President of the Atlantic Club of Bulgaria for Bulgaria On Air TV station.

"I say this with great sadness because when the overall monitoring mechanism was negotiated in 2005-2007, we expected that it would remain in force for two to three years," Passy expained.

"Now Bulgaria is facing 5-6 more years of monitoring and 5-10 years until Schengen area admission. These two matters are very much interconnected, "said the former Foreign Minister.

Solomon Passy is categorical that responsibility should be taken personally, rather than abstractly.
