During the conversation, Prime Minister Borissov expressed satisfaction with the good political, economic and cultural ties in the context of the 60th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Bulgaria and Cyprus. He noted that cooperation between the two countries was for the benefit of both nations and needs to be further deepened. "We are greatly pleased with the results we have achieved in recent years in a number of areas. Bulgaria and Cyprus are two truly friendly countries," said the Bulgarian prime minister.
The bilateral energy partnership was also discussed during the meeting. Prime Minister Borissov said that the implementation of the Gas Interconnector Greece-Bulgaria (IGB) is of particular importance for the whole region of Southeast Europe as an input structure for the import of gas from alternative sources. The Greece-Bulgaria interconnector will connect the North-South gas corridor to the South gas corridor and allow gas to be imported from the LNG terminal of Alexadrupolis, Greece, and the planned Eastern Mediterranean gas pipeline. "In this regard, we consider the strategic energy partnership on the Israel-Cyprus-Greece axis as promising," the Bulgarian prime minister added.
Prime Minister Borisov stressed the importance of the agreement between Israel, Cyprus and Greece on the construction of the EastMed gas pipeline. "This is an extremely large-scale energy and infrastructure project that is of great geopolitical importance for the development of the region and Europe," said Prime Minister Boyko Borissov.
