MEP Slams Bulgarian Govt for Falling Behind with Cyrillic Internet Domains

Bulgaria's government is failing to facilitate the process for the introduction Internet domains in Cyrillic, Bulgarian Member of the European Parliament Ivaylo Kalfin declared after meeting the ICANN management in DC.

"The unwillingness of the Bulgarian government to provide arguments and to enter into a dialogue is an obstacle for the country and the EU as a whole for the registration of domains in Cyrillic," said Kalfin, who was the Foreign Minister in the Stanishev Cabinet (2005-2009).

Kalfin has been received by Stephen Crocker who became Chair of the ICANN Board in June 2011, and by three of the Vice Presidents of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) in Washington.

Even though back in 2009 ICANN approved in principle the registration of non-Latin domains, Bulgaria does not have a domain of its own in Cyrillic yet.

This guy will be running for a president, so he has to say something against the current government.

Maybe but i think he has a point.
Whoever is responsible for this in the Bulgarian government is going against a brick wall with continuing to try and get .бг approved and since i don't see them ever approving that specific ccTLD due to Brazil's .br similarity, they're unwillingness to go with anything other has caused delays in the ccTLD for Bulgaria, Just like it seems the inner arguments between the Israeli government and Israeli internet association is delaying the Hebrew version for idn.co.il (possibly .ישראל but i don't know for certain yet).

Btw, do you know that Greece is in a similar situation? They were rejected, but they also don`t want to change the domain?

Yes with one difference, the similarity to what Greece wants (.ελ) isn't even an existing or planned TLD (.ea)
