President Rumen Radev held a phone call today with the Prime Minister of the Hellenic Republic Kyriakos Mitsotakis. The European integration of the Western Balkan countries, topics on the agenda of bilateral partnership between Bulgaria and Greece and cooperation for overcoming the consequences of the epidemic situation in both countries were among the focal points of the conversation.
The two shared the position that the EU’s enlargement policy with the countries in the Western Balkans is a real investment in stability in the region. Therefore, the Head of State believes it is necessary to have unwavering support for carrying out the necessary reforms in the candidate countries for implementing the Copenhagen Criteria for EU accession. Building true good-neighbourly relations is the most secure and fastest way to achieving full-fledged membership in the European Union, President Radev added.
Increasing energy connectivity and achieving real diversification in the region, as well as accelerating the process of constructing the Bulgaria-Greece interconnector were also discussed.
