Bulgaria Counts on Austria's Support for Schengen Bid

Austria will support Bulgaria in its commitment to reform, the country's President Heinz Fischer made clear on Friday while meeting caretaker PM Georgi Bliznashki.
Austria's head of state arrived in Bulgaria on Thursday to mark the 135th anniversary since the two countries established diplomatic relations. 
Fischer voiced his confidence that the excellent cooperation between Bulgaria and Austria within the EU will continue. 
The Austrian President however pointed out that Bulgaria needed to do more in fighting corruption and legal security. 
Interim Prime Minister Georgi Bliznashki said he and Fischer were sending a message of humility to politicians.
Speaking of bilateral relations, he placed emphasis on cooperation in the fields of education, science and culture, which was "of particular importance" to Bulgaria alongside investment.
He reminded that 1996 investment from Austria was at approximately  6 billion euros and trade turnover was nearly 1 billion euros.
