Bulgaria will not blame the potential perpetrators of the Burgas bus bombing before it has evidence, Bulgarian President Rosen Plevneliev has reiterated.

"The Bulgarian state will do anything it can. Our institutions are on the right track, a lot of trails are being investigated and I am convinced that we will find not only those who committed it, but also those who inspired this terrifying terrorist attack," Plevneliev told bTV in an interview that aired early on Wednesday.

"As a democratic country, Bulgaria cannot afford to make hasty decisions based on allegations. We adhere to the democratic practices," he declared.

The Bulgarian President said he expected the international services to make a real breakthrough in the terrorist attack case over the following couple of weeks.

Five Israeli tourists and a Bulgarian bus driver were killed in the July 18 terrorist attack in the Bulgarian Black Sea city of Burgas. Israel has already blamed Hezbollah for the attack.

On Tuesday, Plevneliev addressed the UN General Assembly in the opening meeting of the General Debate, at UN Headquarters in New York.
