Foreign Ministry Provides Evacuation Option to Bulgarians in Nepal
Wednesday, 29th April 2015

The Bulgarian Foreign Ministry provided Bulgarians, who are currently in Nepal and would like to leave the earthquake-stricken country, with an opportunity for an evacuation.

Bulgarians wishing to evacuate could do so by boarding a Spanish airplane, which will take off from the airport in Kathmandu on Wednesday at 8:00 a.m.  local time.

Those wanting to evacuate have to be present at terminal 3 of the airport at 6:30 a.m.  local time at the latest, the ministry's press service informs.

Before evacuating, Bulgarians have to inform the Bulgarian embassy in Delhi or the Situation centre directorate of the ministry before 20:30 Bulgarian time on Tuesday.

They have to provide their three names and passport numbers to the Bulgarian authorities, while they will need a passport or another document proving their identity in order to board the plane.

According to the latest information of the ministry, no Bulgarians were killed or injured in the disastrous earthquake, which hit the country on Saturday.

Bulgarian PM Borisov Deems Cabinet Reshuffles Pointless
Wednesday, 29th April 2015

Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borisov said on Tuesday that he saw no point in carrying out reshuffles in the government.

This comes as a response to the words of the reelected leader of junior coalition partner ABV and former Bulgarian President Georgi Parvanov.

Upon his reelection to ABV's leadership on Sunday, Parvanov called for reshuffles in the cabinet, pointing in particular to the ministers of defence, foreign affairs, energy and education.

Borisov stated that each party had the right to express its opinion, talk on its policies and cater for its electors, which was the essence of democracy, he said in an interview for private NOVA TV.

As regards the dismissal of 25 customs officials at the Kapitan Andreevo border checkpoint, the prime minister commented that such a fate would befall anyone obstructing revenue collection.

Borisov called for more humane treatment of the immigrants arriving in Bulgaria, pointing that the end goal was to return them to their places of origin.
