Bulgarian foreign minister contacts Romanian counterpart over Danube Bridge traffic problems

Bulgarian Foreign Minister Daniel Mitov discussed on January 24 with his Romanian counterpart Teodor Meleșcanu the problems lorry traffic has been encountering at the Danube Bridge 2, the Foreign Ministry in Sofia said.
