There are about 300,000 Bulgarians in Albania but in different degree of assimilation, Director of National History Museum Prof. Bozhidar Dimitrov told FOCUS News Agency. He explained that the matter in hand is about old Bulgarian inhabitants from the time when Bulgaria has been extended to Drach. In XIIIth century our state lost control over these lands. It is very easy to check up how many are the Bulgarians in Albania, if we announced that will give Bulgarian citizenship for 24 hours to everybody that declared that is ethnical Bulgarian. I am sure in that case that they will be more than the real number of 300,000, Dimitrov stressed.
