    The announcement was made in Bulgaria’s parliament, with a debate on the issue set to take place on Wednesday. The motion is likely tp pass since the ruling coalition holds a two-seat majority

    Lawmaker Tsvetan Tsvetanov noted on Monday: “The position of the Bulgarian government will be not to join the United Nations’ global pact on migration.”

    Several countries have now said they will not attend the summit to be held in Marrakesh in December either.

    The Czech Prime Minister has also been hestitant as the European Commission lambasted Austria for withdrawing from the agreement.

    US President Trump rejected the document as one promoting “no borders, everyone can come in”. The White House later said the UN Compact was “simply not compatible with US sovereignty”.

    Hungary then followed the US when it announced in July that “[T]his document is entirely against Hungary’s security interests… Its main premise is that migration is a good and inevitable phenomenon … We consider migration a bad process, which has extremely serious security implications.”

    Austria similarly cited concerns over national sovereignty when it announced it would withdraw from the pact in October.

    Poland and Croatia have also signalled they would not be participating. Defenders of the UN project continue to insist that the document is not legally binding which highlights the futility of signing it.
