Foreign Minister Zaharieva, PM Borissov Confer with Visiting Greek Foreign Minister Dendias

Foreign Minister Zaharieva, PM Borissov Confer with Visiting Greek Foreign Minister Dendias

11.9.2019
September 11 (BTA) - Energy projects and the European perspective of the Western Balkans figured on the agenda of Wednesday' talks here between Bulgarian Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Ekaterina Zaharieva and Greek Foreign Minister Nikolaos Dendias. "Bulgarian-Greek relations are at a strategic level and set an example of how history can be our teacher rather than our prison," Zaharieva told journalists, emerging from the session with her counterpart. She noted that the sides share close positions regarding the next EU budget, migration, and the European perspective of the Western Balkan countries. The chief Bulgarian diplomat recalled that next year the two countries will celebrate the 140th anniversary of diplomatic relations, and the occasion can be marked by organizing Days of Greece in Bulgaria and Days of Bulgaria in Greece, as well as by holding a joint meeting of the two governments. Zaharieva noted that two-way trade is growing annually and reached 3.3 billion euro for 2018. Tourist exchanges are making fine progress, too. The two ministers also discussed energy matters: the Bulgaria-Greece gas interconnector project and the LNG terminal at Alexandroupolis. "We are one of the major investors in Bulgaria and we always encourage Greek investors to come and invest in your friendly country, while at the same time, we invite Bulgarian potential investors in Greece," Dendias pointed out. He said that Greece and Bulgaria are "close partners, allies and friends." "Today we play a key role in our region's stability and development and we spare no effort in contributing to our neighbours' European path," the guest added. "Greece is a pillar of stability and cooperation in the Balkans and has always been a supporter of the European Union's Enlargement Policy. We encourage and support the European perspective of the Western Balkan countries, on the condition that they meet of course the set criteria and conditionality. In this context, and regarding the Republic of North Macedonia, we place particular importance to the full and consistent implementation of the Prespa Agreement," Dendias said. Conferring with the Greek Foreign Minister, Prime Minister Borissov stressed the importance of stepping up the implementation of the Bulgaria-Greece gas interconnector, which is prioritized by this country, the Government Information Service said. "This is crucial for diversification. We have already made full arrangements for financing the interconnector with a capacity for 3 to 5 billion cu m," the PM said further. During the Borissov-Dendias talks, the sides declared their desire to press ahead with the implementation of other infrastructure and energy projects, too, in the interest of both countries. The large potential of tourism, which Bulgaria and Greece have been developing in recent years, was also stressed at the meeting. Borissov noted the importance of the Struma Motorway for Bulgaria's connectivity with its southern neighbour. RY/LG // Source: Sofia, http://www.bta.bg/en/c/DF/id/2073685
