Sarajevo's mayor's office shone in the colors of Bulgaria's flag, the first country to recognize Bosnia and Herzegovina's independence 30 years ago, the local daily Dnevni Avaz reported.
On January 15, 1992, Bulgaria was the first to recognize the independence of Bosnia and Herzegovina and North Macedonia. Our country was also among the first countries to recognize the independence of Slovenia and Croatia.
The mayor of Sarajevo said that the lighting of the town hall building is a symbolic act of friendship with Bulgaria.
“Tonight the town hall was lit with the colors of the flag of the Republic of Bulgaria, the first country to recognize the independence of Bosnia and Herzegovina on this day in 1992” (it is not known where the discrepancy in the calendar comes from).
“With this symbolic act of friendship, we want to express our gratitude for the helping hand in the difficult moments of our history,” Mayor Benjamina Karic wrote on her Twitter account.
