In front of 21 young political and civic leaders from Morocco, Tunisia and Bulgaria the Bulgarian Foreign Minister stressed on the two major factors for successful development of the Mediterranean region. One of these factors is the importance of dialog and the second one is the development of the democratic institutions based on the principles. He says also that the Summer Academy is testimony of this conviction and commitment.
