Bulgaria's Prime Minister, Boyko Borisov, is leaving Saturday on an official, working visit to the US and a December 3 meeting with US President, Barack Obama, at the White House in Washington DC.
The delegation includes Borisov's Deputy, Interior Minister, Tsvetan Tsvetanov (who is in the US already for a series of security talks), Foreign Affairs Minister, Nikolay Mladenov, and Defense Minister, Anyu Angelov.
The Bulgarian PM is the first European leader to be accepted by Obama during his second term in office after his reelection on November 6....
This boast by the PM's press office is incorrect. Obama's second term does not start until Jan 20, 2013. Nice try but there is nothing "historic" about this visit. Except for a sitting US president to accept a mafia kingpin into the White House. Oh, forgot that has happened 100s of times! ;-)
