Bulgaria, Turkey and Qatar to build common highway

Bulgaria, Turkey and Qatar agreed to build a 300-km highway on the Bulgarian territory which will connect the Danube River town of Ruse, with the southern town of Svilengrad.

“As decided at the meeting of the prime ministers of Bulgaria, Qatar and Turkey, we held a technical meeting over the construction of the Ruse-Svilengrad highway under the principle of the public-private partnership,” Bulgarian Construction Minister Lilyana Pavlova told a news conference.

“This is not an EU-backed project. It will be realized as a joint project with the participation of the three countries,” Bulgarian Prime Minister Boiko Borisov said.
