Bulgarian Foreign Minister Nikolay Mladenov on Thursday urged Israeli tourists to continue holidaying in Bulgaria, stating that Wednesday's terror attack was a one-off incident.

The attack targeting Israelis killed at least seven people in the city of Burgas, soon after a charter plane, Air Bulgaria flight 392 arrived from Ben-Gurion Airport.

Mladenov stressed that the attack was the first of its kind in the country, and that Bulgaria was "one of the friendliest nations" that has good relations with Israelis. He added that if Israelis stopped visiting Bulgaria due to the attack, "this is what the terrorists want to achieve."
