Bulgarian PM Borissov, Brexit secretary Davis talk bilateral relations

Bulgarian Prime Minister Boiko Borissov offered visiting Brexit secretary David Davis reassurances of continued close bilateral relations with Britain, after the latter leaves the European Union, during talks in Sofia on March 8.

Close ties were in the interest of both countries and beneficial to Bulgaria and Britain’s strategic partnership as members of Nato, with maintaining the excellent co-operation in security matters being especially important, Borissov told Davis, as quoted by the Bulgarian government media statement.

Despite the ongoing Brexit process, Europe has to remain united and strong, Borissov reportedly told Davis.

The government statement gave no further details on the talks between Borissov and Davis, which come at a time when Britain and the rest of the EU remain at loggerheads regarding their future post-Brexit trade relationship.
