The two officials have discussed bilateral relations, options for furtherance of cooperation in energy and economy, as well as the prospects of the Western Balkans, the Bulgarian Foreign Ministry has said.
Zaharieva and Péter Szijjártó have stated that work on regional energy projects should speed up to allow diversification not only of routes but also of supply sources.
