Vice-PM Zaharieva hosts ambassador of Italy at conclusion of his term

Vice-PM and Minister of Foreign Affairs Ekaterina Zaharieva has hosted Ambassador of Italy to Sofia Stefano Baldi on the occasion of him concluding his term in Bulgaria. The two senior officials discussed the excellent state of bilateral relations as well as challenges facing European countries in relation to the coronavirus pandemic.

“I would like to express my gratitude for all the work that you did, the numerous cultural events you organised. You are going to be missed and I hope that we meet again,” Vice-PM Ekaterina Zaharieva told H.E. Stefano Baldi.

Ambassador Baldi gifted Bulgaria’s foreign minister with a special book about diplomatic relations between Bulgaria and Italy, a project he himself realised. Last year, 2019, marked a big anniversary – 140 years since diplomatic relation between the two countries were established. Baldi noted that it has been a pleasure for him to serve as ambassador of Italy to Bulgaria and wished the two nations success and prosperity.
