Bulgarian prime minister Boiko Borisov and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin discussed over the telephone on Monday bilateral economic and political relations, the Bulgarian government said.
Borisov will inform President Rosen Plevneliev and the National Assembly about the conversation, the government said in a press release without elaborating.
Bulgaria's energy minister will visit Moscow to discuss in detail joint projects, the state-run Bulgarian National Radio (BNR) reported, quoting a spokesman of the Russian prime minister. The spokesman added that Borisov and Putin talked about projects in the energy sector.
Borisov said on Sunday that he plans to inform his Russian counterpart over the phone about Bulgaria's stand on the project for the Belene nuclear power plant. The government is considering various options for this project, including to relocate the Russian-made reactor to the existing nuclear power plant Kozloduy, or to sell it to a third party.
