Monday, 13 July 2015
Prime Minister Boyko Borisov has suggested at a meeting with Montenegro’s President Filip Vujanovic that Bulgaria may use a high-voltage link between Montenegro and Italy, which is yet to be completed, in order to export electricity to Italy.
Borisov and Vujanovic met Friday at the Council of Ministers building in Sofia, according to the press office of the Bulgarian government.
The two discussed opportunities for cooperation in the spheres of energy and tourism.
Work is currently underway to update the existing agreement in the sphere of tourism and the launch of a direct flight Sofia-Podgorica is being discussed, according to the media statement.
The implementation of the measures included in the bilateral program for scientific and technical cooperation is also expected to have a positive economic impact.
Borisov confirmed Bulgaria’s support for Montenegro’s accession to Euro-Atlantic structures and offered help in the negotiation process.
