The visit of Bulgarian President Rumen Radev scheduled for today did not take place

20.10.2020

The official visit of the President of Bulgaria Rumen Radev to Estonia planned for today was canceled, as it became clear yesterday afternoon that the Bulgarian Head of State had been in contact with a COVID-19 positive before arriving in Estonia.

Once this information was receiced, all necessary measures were taken as is the common European practice these days. And for that reason the Bulgarian Head of State did not attend yesterday's dinner of the Three Seas Initative either. President Kaljulaid had a phone call with President Radev this morning and they both agreed that in these circumstances it was not not possible to hold any meetings.

Fortunately the two Heads of State managed to have a long and fruitful conversation during the Three Seas Virtual Summit yesterday. During the event Estonia handed over the organising of the next summit to Bulgaria and remains available to support Bulgarian chairmanship of the Three Seas Initiative with its expertise.
