US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has described Monday's meeting between Barack Obama and Bulgarian PM Boyko Borisov as "historic" in the two countries' relations, the Bulgarian Foreign Ministry has revealed in a statement.

Upon receiving Borisov for a meeting in the White House on Monday, Obama noted that Bulgaria has proven to be one of the most outstanding NATO allies of the USA.

The Bulgarian PM informed Obama about the progress of the investigation of the July 18 terrorist attack in the Black Sea city of Burgas.

Clinton met with Bulgarian Foreign Minister Nikolay Mladenov on Tuesday within the framework of a meeting of NATO foreign ministers in Brussels.

Mladenov highlighted energy security and diversification, the abolition of visas for Bulgarian citizens, and social insurance for Bulgarians in the United States as important issues in the countries' bilateral co-operation.

The crisis in Syria and its impact on regional security, as well as the Euro-Atlantic perspectives of the Western Balkans, were among the topics discussed, the Bulgarian Foreign Minsitry says.
