Bulgaria Seeks to Benefit from Russia-Turkey Spat

In a fine balancing act, Bulgaria seeks to benefit from a spat between Turkey and Russia to revive weakened economic ties with Moscow - its main gas supplier - without offending Ankara, an important ally in the migrant crisis, AFP reports.
In a sign of thawing relations, Sofia last week hosted a meeting of the Bulgarian-Russian economic cooperation committee - the first since the 2014 failure of the South Stream pipeline project. 
The multi-billion-dollar plan had aimed to deliver Russian gas to Europe via the Black Sea and the Balkans while bypassing conflict-ridden Ukraine.
