Tsipras: Agreement Linking Ports in Greece, Bulgaria of 'Historic and Geopolitical Significance'

An agreement signed by Greece and Bulgaria to build rail connections between ports in Bulgaria and northern Greece had "historic and geopolitical significance," Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said on Wednesday, after the two countries signed a Memorandum of Cooperation. He was speaking during a joint press conference with Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borisov, who also announced plans to extend this cooperation to include Serbia and Romania in the future.
The agreement concerns the interconnection of Greece's three major ports of Alexandroupolis, Kavala and Thessaloniki with the Bulgarian seaports of Varna and Burgas on the Black Sea and Ruse, a port on the Danube River.
"This is a historic agreement for Greece and Bulgaria's common course toward growth," Tsipras said, adding that Greece's co-operation with Bulgaria was crucial.
