Prime Minister Boiko Borisov stated Friday that the statements circulated across Greek media that a tax will be imposed to Bulgarians visiting Greece for tourism are completely false.

He further announced at a news conference held in Brussels after a session of the European Council that the topic has never been discussed.

The comment made by Borisov was on account of the information that he had warned he is willing to impose taxes on Bulgarian tourists choosing to go to Greece in case the Parliament in Athens, in its turn, approves the incorporation of 26% taxes over the deals of all Greek companies with countries with relaxed tax regimes. The information came from the Greek Reporter, quoting the economic issue of Euro2day.com.

The media also notes that Bulgaria is the fourth largest export partner to Greece with goods worth EUR 1.339 B traded in 2014, marking a decrease from EUR 1,396 B in goods over the course of 2013.

''This is Greek propaganda executed in a very poor way, stated Borisov. ''This is a blatant lie.''

He further noted that he hasn't held any talks with his Greek counterpart Alexis Tsipras and stated that the bilateral relations between the two countries are excellent and peaceful.
