"Turkish Stream" and "Belene" are the most important topics of his entire visit to Bulgaria and minutes before he stressed to his Bulgarian counterpart Boyko Borisov that the gas project could only be realized with guarantees at the level of the European Commission.
"Russia is a strategic partner in the energy sector, where there is great potential for deepening our relations, but with due regard for expediency, competitiveness, transparency, security of supply and what is particularly important for us at a bargain price'', Radev said.
''With our efforts, we can change everything, it is important for governments to work, make the necessary decisions at the company level, have a dialogue, "Medvedev said.
He invited Rumen Radev to the International Economic Forum in St. Petersburg, and the Bulgarian head of state stressed that bilateral dialogue could help restore confidence between the EU and Russia.
