Governments of Bulgaria and Romania to Hold Joint Meeting in October

The governments of Bulgaria and Romania will hold a joint meeting in Varna in October, Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borissov said in the seaside city on Saturday. Borissov added that Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras will also be invited to the meeting. The discussion will focus on improving the transport links between the Balkan countries, he said.
Borissov was in Varna to talk with the participants in the summer university of the European Democrat Students, the official student organization of the European People's Party.
He said the accession of the Balkan countries to the European Union goes through infrastructure. "The building of links between the individual nations will allow Bulgaria to become a very important transport hub," Borissov noted. The matter should be bound up with the implementation of the EU strategies for the Danube and Black Sea regions, he insisted. According to the Prime Minister, Bulgaria will have a rare chance of keeping the topic hot as it presides over the Council of the EU in the first half of 2018, after which the presidency will go to Austria and then to Romania, both of which are Danubian countries like Bulgaria.
