Visiting Turkish PM Davutoglu Confers with Prime Minister Borissov, President Plevneliev

Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu paid a working visit to Bulgaria on Tuesday. In Sofia Davutoglu conferred with his Bulgarian counterpart Boyko Borissov and President Rosen Plevneliev.
"The visit to Sofia shows our close good-neighbourly relations and our common destiny," Davutoglu said. "We will prioritize our relations with Bulgaria," he stressed. "Our two-way trade will be increased from the current 5,000 million dollars. We will implement major transport projects, including a high-speed rail link between Sofia and Istanbul. We will link Bulgaria to Turkey through an interconnector for the supply of gas from Azerbaijan. We share a commitment to the Turkish population in Bulgaria, which is a bridge between the two countries," he added.
Borissov said that Bulgaria, Turkey and Greece have decided to build interconnectors which, together with the Balkan Gas Hub, will achieve genuine diversification and unimpeded flow of natural gas in all directions. "I hope that the transport ministers will invite us soon to the opening of a railway between Bulgaria and Turkey on which trains travel at a speed of 180-190 km/h," he pointed out.
