During her official visit to Bulgaria, US Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, will meet with Prime Minister, Boyko Borisov, and President, Rosen Plevneliev.

Ministers from the Bulgarain Cabinet will also be present during the talks.

The visit is scheduled for February 5 and comes on the invitation of Bulgaria's Foreign Minister Nikolay Mladenov back in October 2010 during his visit to the US when the Bulgarian government's anti-corruption measures were discussed.

Main topics on the agenda of the talks are expected to include bilateral partnership, the situation in the Middle East, in Southeastern Europe, and Bulgaria's contribution to the NATO/ISAF mission in Afghanistan.

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."
