Bulgarian PM in talks with Skopje, Belgrade counterparts on developing transport infrastructure

Bulgarian Prime Minister Boiko Borissov held conversations with his counterparts in Skopje, Zoran Zaev, and in Belgrade, Ana Brnabić, on stepping up work on developing transport infrastructure in the Balkans, according to government statements.

A statement on the January 23 discussion between Borissov and Zaev said that the Bulgarian Prime Minister pointed out that in his meetings in Strasbourg, he had put the issue of connectivity as a first step towards the integration of the countries of the region, which can be done while the states were still preparing for EU membership.

Borissov, whose country holds the rotating Presidency of the Council of the European Union in the first half of 2018, earlier briefed a plenary of the European Parliament in Strasbourg on Bulgaria’s priorities for the presidency.
