According to Prime Minister Borisov, the project "Thessaloniki-Kavala-Alexandroupolis-Bourgas-Varna-Rousse" signed in Kavala is of strategic importance not only for the two countries but also for the development of the region as a whole. Bulgaria's prime minister also noted the progress of interconnector work with Greece, the government's press service said.

Another topic of the meeting was the security of the Western Balkans and the European perspective of the countries in the region. The results of the four-party Balkan meeting in Evksinograd, where Prime Minister Borisov welcomed the Prime Ministers of Greece and Romania - Alexis Tsipras and Mihai Tudose, as well as Serbian President Alexander Vucic, were presented.
