Bulgaria is to have a diplomatic mission in the United Arab Emirates, and an embassy will be set up in Dubai, the government has announced.
The two countries have maintained diplomatic relations since 1991. None of the two had so far taken the step of opening a mission to the other.
Reasons for Sofia to open up an embassy combine the Emirates' growing regional and international influence with the presence of a 3500-strong Bulgarian community, also growing, in the country.
