Serbian President Boris Tadic is set to visit Bulgaria for high-profile talks with Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borisov.
Tadic will be arriving to Bulgaria’s Black Sea city of Varna on Friday, August 6. He will be welcomed at the airport by Borisov as well as by Interior Minister Tsvetan Tsvetanov and Foreign Minister Nikolay Mladenov.
The Serbian President and the Bulgarian PM will give a short news briefing at the Varna Airport, and will then set out to the Evksinograd (Euxinograd) Palace, a historical residence of the Bulgarian government on the Black Sea coast north of Varna, which is where the high-profile bilateral talks will be held.
According to the official announcements, the major topic of the meeting between Borisov and Tadic will be “the political and economic relations between the two states and the possibilities for expanding the results of the traditionally good bilateral connections.” No further details have been provided.
The last meeting between Borisov and Tadic was in April 2010 when the Bulgarian PM visited Belgrade. Back then the governments of Bulgaria and Serbia agreed to speed up the completion of the Sofia-Nis Highway.
Recent statements of Bulgarian Economy Minister Traicho Traikov have indicated that Serbia is interested in participating in the project for the construction of Bulgaria’s second nuclear power plant at Belene, and was ready to invest in it a sum amounting to 1% of the total cost of the project.
