The Fatherland Front, composed of all major political parties in Bulgaria, considers the question of Jewish emigration form the country as a purely Jewish affair, Zdravko Mitovsky, one of the principal leaders of the pro-Government united front organization told the correspondent of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency today.

Expressing confidence that the Bulgarian government would not hamper Jewish emigration from the country to Palestine or any other land, the Bulgarian leader said that he believes that Jews remaining in Bulgaria will not suffer from any econimic changes that may take place and that they will gradually recover their pre-war business enterprises.
