Bulgaria's Borisov, Germany's Merkel to Discuss South Stream, EU Funds

Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borisov is set to meet German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Monday.
Borisov, who headed the government for a second term in October, is on an official visit to Berlin at the invitation of his German counterpart.
The abandoned South Stream gas pipeline and EU funding is due to top the two leaders' agenda.
A week after Russian President Vladimir Putin announced the end of South Stream early in December, Sofia came up with a proposal that Europe should help it to set up a hub for Russian gas at the entry of the pipeline into Bulgaria.
The Bulgarian PM is expected to discuss the issue with Merkel, though Moscow is so far determined not to go on with the project. 
Bulgaria has already communicated its idea to the European Commission, but Maros Sefcovic, the EU Commissioner for Energy Union, has not yet commented.
Borisov arrived in Germany on Sunday afternoon and met representatives of Berlin's Bulgarian community in a few hours.
