The UK’s decision to leave the European Union is ‘deeply regrettable’, Bulgaria’s President Rosen Plevneliev has said.  

“It's a bad day for Europe, bad day for the European democracy a bad day for the European economy,” Plevneliev said  at a history conference in Sofia on Friday, according to bTV broadcaster.

Plevneliev also said that the decision to leave was a clear sign of a history lesson poorly learnt.

According to Plevneliev, a great power, which is the symbol of free trade, a state, which is the symbol of liberal democracy, has decided to isolate itself into its national boundaries.

“I deeply regret this outcome. I am deeply worried that today, nationalists and populists triumph on the streets of Europe, but I am sure that united Europe - with or without Britain -  must look forward," Plevneliev said.
