Bulgaria and Romania together can have a strong voice in the region and the EU – foreign ministers

Close co-operation will make Bulgaria and Romania’s voice better heard in the region and the European Union, Bulgarian Foreign Minister Daniel Mitov said after talks in Bucharest with his Romanian counterpart Bogdan Aurescu.

Bulgaria and Romania are good neighbours, partners and allies in the EU and Nato. The path they have chosen in the last two decades – of freedom, democracy, European and Euro-Atlantic integration – brings the two nations even closer.

That is why we, the politicians on the two banks of the Danube, should communicate and meet more often, Mitov said at a joint news conference with Aurescu on February 19.

Our two countries are engaged in an open and friendly dialogue as strategic partners, Aurescu said, according to a statement by Bulgaria’s Foreign Ministry.
