Bulgarian and Israeli governments to hold joint meeting in Jerusalem

Bulgarian Prime Minister Boiko Borissov is leading a Bulgarian delegation to Israel on a visit on September 10 and 11 2012, during which the two countries’ governments will have a joint meeting in Jerusalem

Borissov is to hold talks with his Israeli counterpart Benjamin Netanyahu and with president Shimon Peres. The Bulgarian delegation is comprised of 12 Cabinet ministers.

Bilateral agreements are to be signed on information technology and communication, health care, and a programme of co-operation on science, culture and education 2012/14

The two governments earlier met jointly in the Bulgarian capital city Sofia on July 7 2011. On that occasion, Borissov and Netanyahu signed a declaration of co-operation between Bulgaria and Israel in several areas of strategic importance.

After the July 18 2012 suicide bombing terrorist attack on Israeli tourists at Bourgas Airport in the Bulgarian Black Sea city, in which five Israeli citizens and a Bulgarian died, government and state leaders in Bulgaria and Israel underlined the solidarity between the two countries.
