Ambassador Bokova has all the qualities needed to become the head of UNESCO and much has been done for her candidature, said the president Georgi Parvanov when asked if Irina Bokova has a chance to become the Director General of the organization.
“What is more important,” added Parvanov, “is that we showed not only our unique cultural and historical achievements, but also showed our cultural politics that has been safekeeping the national heritage for decades. This surely is the best advertisement we can make for the cultural aspects of Bulgaira.”
