  • [01] Bulgarian leader in Athens

    (ANA-MPA) -- Visiting Bulgarian President Georgi Parvanov on Tuesday emphasised the significance of cooperation between Greece and Bulgaria in the energy sector, during a meeting with President of the Republic Karolos Papoulias in Athens.

    Parvanov, who is in Greece for a three-day official visit, said that the level of bilateral relations was "good as never before" and that cooperation "in the energy sector will be very important for the two countries, as part of a more general European vision".

    Among the issues raised by the Bulgarian president was the need to accelerate work for bringing natural gas from Stara Zagora in Bulgaria to the northeastern Greek city of Komotini.

    The Bulgarian president also referred to the "Thessaloniki Agenda" for the western Balkans, noting that this was the EU's best message for the region and that it would be best for this policy to be continued. Regarding policy for the Balkans and Black Sea, he also noted the advisability of heeding the positions expressed by Greece, Romania and Bulgaria as the three EU member-states closest to those regions.
