Foreign Minister Zaharieva Meets Counterparts of Oman, India, Ghana and Tajikistan in New York

Foreign Minister Zaharieva Meets Counterparts of Oman, India, Ghana and Tajikistan in New York

24.9.2019
September 24 (BTA) - On the sidelines of the UN General Assembly Session which is underway in New York, Bulgarian Foreign Minister Ekaterina Zaharieva met with the top diplomats of Oman, India, Ghana and Tajikistan on Monday. Details of the meetings were made public by her Ministry. The opportunities for joined projects in agriculture, tourism, the energy sector, infrastructure, culture and education were discussed by Zaharieva with the Foreign Minister of Oman, Yusuf bin Alawi bin Abdullah. She said that it is time to further encourage bilateral relations as the two countries have no open issues between them. The two sides have prepared a bilateral agreement on visa waiver for the short-term stay for the holders of diplomatic, special and official passports and a memorandum of understanding for consultations between the two Foreign Ministries, and these can be signed during a visit by any of the two Foreign Ministers to the other country. In a wide-ranging conversation, the two Ministers discussed also the situation in the Gulf and measures against climate change. They exchanged invitations for visits. Meeting with Indian Foreign Minister Subrahmanyam Jaishankar, Zaharieva said that there are no open issues but only opportunities for the two countries and their business people. The Indian top diplomat thanked Bulgaria for its support for India in the EU and said he would be happy to visit Bulgaria or be visited by Minister Zaharieva. He also said that India is seeking in Europe partnerships in the area of the economy and life sciences. Service centres in fifteen Indian cities are about to start issuing Bulgarian visas, which will facilitate considerably contacts between businesses and people. Zaharieva assured her counterpart that Bulgaria is supportive of a peaceful solution for the issues between India and Pakistan: "on a bilateral basis, through constructive talks and much wisdom". Zaharieva told Ghanaian Minister of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration Shirley Ayorkor Botchwey that she would be glad to visit Ghana with a business delegation within her forthcoming tour in Africa and to investigate the opportunities for Bulgarian investments. Botchwey responded that Bulgarian business is welcome to invest in Ghana and presented the conditions her government has created for foreign companies. In her opinion, the two countries have laid a good political foundation to be further materialized in practical results. The sides were adamant that dialogue on political level should be promoted. Zaharieva said that there is an opportunity for Ghanaian students to study at Bulgarian universities. A considerable number of students from Africa have graduated from Bulgarian universities and now hold respected positions in their home countries, she pointed out. Zaharieva discussed with her counterpart of Tajikistan, Sirojiddin Muhriddin, ways to strengthen further bilateral relations, which have been traditionally good. Zaharieva recalled that in 2008 the two sides approved an agreement on economic cooperation and in 2016 another one on international road transport but both documents have not yet been signed. She said the two countries should make sure they are finalized. Muhriddin said that relations in culture and education need to be strengthened as well. "We understand your language," he said. Tajikistan also relies on closer ties with Bulgaria and the EU in the area of security and said protecting his country's border with Afghanistan is the biggest challenge they face. Minister Muhriddin invited his Bulgarian counterpart to visit his country. Bilateral trade stood at 338,000 US dollars in 2018 after dropping by 61.7 per cent from 2017. Bulgaria runs a surplus in two-way trade. The Bulgarian export is dominated by medicines (40.3 per cent). In the past year, Tajikistan has launched a reform in its industrial sector, including machine building, electrical engineering, the energy industry and the processing industry, and Bulgarian businesses can participate with their experience, the Foreign Ministry said.
