Bulgaria, Greece hold intergovernmental meeting

Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borissov and a delegation led by him arrived in Greece for the fourth meeting of the Council for High-level Cooperation between the governments of Bulgaria and Greece. In Alexandroupolis Borissov was welcomed by Greek Foreign Minister Nikolaos Dendias.

This will be the first intergovernmental meeting since Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis took office in July 2019.
On the agenda of the meeting are discussions of projects of mutual interest, review of the joint priorities aimed at achieving higher economic growth, connectivity, stability and security in the region, the information service of the Bulgarian government said in a press release.
In 2020 the two neighbouring countries mark the 140th anniversary since the establishment of diplomatic relations and want to serve as a successful example how to overcome historical layers and build trust and partnership on the spirit of shared European and Euro-Atlatnic values, says the press release.
On the Bulgarian delegation are Foreign Minister Ekaterina Zaharieva, Defence Minister Krassimir Karakachanov, Finance Minister Vladislav Goranov, Interior Minister Mladen Marinov, Transport, IT and Communications Minister Rossen Zhelyazkov, Energy Minister Temenouzhka Petkova, Economy Minister Emil Karanikolov, Regional Development and Public Works Minister Petya Avramova, Culture Minister Boil Banov, and Tourism Minister Nikolina Angelkova.
