US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is to be on an official visit to Bulgaria on February 4 and February 5, according to the Bulgarian Foreign Ministry.

Clinton was invited by Bulgaria's Foreign Minister Nikolay Mladenov back in October 2010 during his visit to the US in which the Bulgarian government's anti-corruption measures were discussed.

The US Embassy in Sofia has told the local Trud daily that it has received a confirmation by the US  Department of State concerning Hillary Clinton's visit.

The US Secretary of State's visits abroad are announced by her cabinet in Washington, DC.

Hillary Clinton has already been to Bulgaria in her capacity of First Lady, when husband Bill Clinton was US President. The visit to Sofia took place in October 1998, when she participated in the conference "Women of the 21st century."
