Bulgaria's foreign minister, Nicolay Mladenov, has told Al Jazeera he believes British politicians are singling out his country in the UK immigration debate.
EU restrictions are due to be abolished next year, and some members of British parliament have said it will open the floodgates for Bulgarian workers.
Many Bulgarians, however, say they are happy to stay in their home country, and scoff at allegations that they are out to exploit Britain's social services.
