BERLIN – The Bulgarian government flatly rejected on Thursday reports that meetings between official representatives of the government and Hamas officials took place.

Vessela Tcherneva, the spokeswoman for the Bulgarian Foreign Ministry, told The Jerusalem Post that “the news about an official visit of Hamas is wrong and false” and no one has invited Hamas from the side of the government.

She said the Hamas representatives are “on a private visitation of an NGO” in Sofia.

A spokeswoman for Israeli Ambassador to Bulgaria Shaul Kamisa Raz conveyed a statement to the Post from Israel’s top envoy in the country saying that “Hamas is recognized as a terror organization by the EU. There can be no ambiguity about this group and its purposes. As for this recent visit to Bulgaria, we are looking into this. In order to understand the exact circumstances under which this visit took place, we prefer not to make any further comments at this point.”

Ismail al-Ashkar, the head of the Hamas parliamentary list Change and Reform, led the delegation. Hamas legislators Salah Bardaweel and Mushir al-Masri, who is also a spokesman for the Islamist terrorist movement in the Gaza Strip, accompanied him.
