Bulgaria’s Prime Minister Boyko Borisov has assured his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan that his cabinet was doing all it could to find the best solution for the Turkish-language news on the national TV.

This has happened in a phone conversation Thursday, in which Borisov has made it clear his government would exert all efforts to make sure that the issue did not become a matter of speculations by political forces in Bulgaria.

The phone conversation between the two Prime Ministers comes hours after the Turkish Foreign Ministry issued a declaration saying it expected the Bulgarian government would “exert the necessary efforts for resolving this problem through dialogue within the democratic laws and the respect for human rights.“

The Prime Ministers of Bulgaria and Turkey have also discussed the condition of the joint projects in the energy and infrastructure spheres, and of the bilateral trade.

They have confirmed the visit of Bulgaria’s PM Borisov to Turkey at the beginning of 2010.

What has Erdogan to do with the bulgarian referendum? Turkey should care about its own problems and for those Mr. Erdogan is responsible by himself. But Bulgarian being even turkish speaking Bulgarians are subjects not only of their own state, but also free european citizens which have the right to express their free will in their own country. So it would be advisoble for bulgarian officials to discuss the problems of Bulgarian citizens with themselves or with their elected representatives. Mr. Erdogan is not one of those or am I mistaken is he probably one of those turkish citizen with double citizenship
