There is no possibility whatsoever of the UK introducing visas for Bulgarians, the Bulgarian Foreign Minister, Nikolay Mladenov, said on Monday.
Mladenov has reminded that all EU labour restrictions for Bulgarian citizens will be lifted in 2014.
In an interview with the British newspapers, the Sunday Times, UK Home Secretary Theresa May said that the EU's freedom of movement directive, which guarantees the right of its 500 million citizens to travel freely within the EU, should be reviewed.
However, Mladenov has described her statement as "election campaigning."
In an interview for the Btv channel, Mladenov also refuted recent rumours that his late father was a spy for the communist regime's secret service, saying the rumours were "communist propaganda."
In two high-profile war crimes trials currently ongoing in Pristina, a series of witnesses have retracted previous statements alleging abuse at Kosovo Liberation Army detention centres.
