Bulgarian President Rumen Radev hosted a Ramadan dinner in Sofia amid the EU-Western Balkans Summit in Bulgaria’s capital, last night. The dinner was attended by Bosnia’s Presidency Chairman Bakir Izetbegovic as well as numerous diplomats and representatives of different religions present in Bulgaria, and numerous academics.

"Our religions are maybe different in the Balkans, but our values are common and we can live in peace. Different religions in Sarajevo and Sofia continue to coexist in sacred places, museums and cultural monuments," Radev said, stating that Izetbegovic's presence shows awareness of the responsibilities of the leaders of the Western Balkans.

"As every sacred place has room for everyone, so do our hearts have room for everyone. We just want peace in our lives," Radev added.

The city of Sofia will host the EU-Western Balkans Summit which begins today. Participants at the Summit are the officials of Albanian, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Montenegro, Macedonia and Kosovo alongside EU representatives.

The host of the meeting is the Prime Minister of Bulgaria Boyko Borisov, and the meeting will be chaired by the President of the European Council Donald Tusk and Jean-Claude Juncker will represent the EU as well as the European Commission.

Also attending the Summit are the President of the European Parliament Antonio Tajani, the EU High Representative Federica Mogherini, the European Commissioner for Enlargement and Neighbourhood Policy Johannes Hahn, as well as representatives of the World Bank.
