The US State Department employees who are about to arrive on an official visit to Bulgaria on February 5 are about to witness some tough winter conditions, State Department spokesperson Victoria Nuland believes.

"Happy Groundhog Day everybody. I understand he saw his shadow, so six more weeks of winter, huh? Winter like this we can handle though. We haven't really had much winter, right? But for those of us going off to Bulgaria, I think we are about to get some winter," Nuland said on Thursday as she opened her Daily Press Briefing.

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will travel to Bulgaria's capital Sofia on February 5 in order to meet with senior Bulgarian officials and discuss a range of issues, including democratic transitions in the Middle East, our ongoing support for Afghanistan, energy security and our bilateral cooperation in international law enforcement.

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

Clinton, is expected to extend an official offer to the Bulgarian government for the acquiring from the American army of several secondhand fighter jets F-16.
