Bulgarian PM to Meet Obama by End of Year
Bulgarian Prime Minister, Boyko Borisov, will meet recently reelected for a second term in office US President, Barack Obama, by the end of 2012.
The invitation has been extended by John Brennan, Chief Counterterrorism Advisor to the President during a meeting in Washington DC with Bulgaria's Deputy Prime Minister and Interior Minister, Tsvetan Tsvetanov, bTV reports Tuesday morning.
Tsvetanov has extended congratulations to Obama for his reelection on behalf of Bulgaria and Borisov, and has wished him a successful second term, which Brennan has accepted with gratitude.
The Counterterrorism Advisor has said that the Administration of the US President and the American people have always considered Bulgaria to be an important strategic ally in Europe and globally.
The invitation to Borisov has been extended at the very end of the talks with John Brennan stressing this would be one of the first meetings of Obama with a foreign leader after the reelection.
The investigation of the terror act in Bulgaria's Black Sea city of Burgas, which killed five Israeli tourists and their Bulgarian bus driver in July, has also been discussed.
Despite having no clear leads and no identification of the perpetrator and his possible accomplices, Brennan has stated that he was satisfied because Bulgarian law enforcement and the police in particular have an energetic leader, dedicated to building and expending the partnership with the US.
