Bulgaria: Bulgaria To Review Citizenship Procedure Bulgaria's Foreign Minister Kristian Vigenin, photo by BGNES

Bulgaria will reconsider the procedure for granting of citizenship to foreign nationals with Bulgarian origin. 

“We shall not take measures aimed at particular Bulgarian communities in one country or another”, said Bulgaria's Foreign Minister Kristian Vigenin. “But since problems in this regard arose, and not for the first time, Prime Minister Plamen Oresharski and I have agreed to set up an expert group and review the current procedure.”

According to Vigenin, the complicated procedure created additional tension in some countries – the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia in particular.

“One hand we must guarantee that people of Bulgarian origin who want to get a Bulgarian citizenship won't be turned away, but on the other, we must guarantee, that there will be no abuse.”

Yeah they use propaganda to give them Bulgarian citizenship so that they can go and work in the West, improve their country's economy so that FYROM wouldn't die out and keep its anti-Bulgarian policy

There is already an abuse by the Bulgarian state. They use the poverty and the misery of the people to make Bulgarians out of them to suit their propaganda.
