Prime Minister Nikolai Denkov addressed the 12th plenary debate titled "This is Europe" in Strasbourg, emphasizing Bulgaria's commitment to contribute significantly to the development of the European Union (EU). Denkov highlighted Bulgaria's rich history as one of Europe's oldest nations and pointed out ongoing attempts by Russia to exert influence through targeted hybrid attacks.

Touching upon global conflicts, Denkov referenced the Ukraine conflict, the Gaza situation, and other geopolitical tensions worldwide.
