US President Barack Obama will host Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borisov at the White House on December 3, it has been announced.

Obama and Borisov will discuss a range of bilateral and regional issues, including the Eastern European country's participation in NATO operations in Afghanistan, a statement said.

Obama also "looks forward" to receiving updates on Bulgaria's investigation into the July 18, 2012 terrorist attack in Burgas.

Israel has already blamed Hezbollah for the July 18 attack. However, the Balkan country has refused to point a finger at any person or organization before garnering enough evidence.

Bulgaria's ongoing rule of law and judicial reforms are also expected to be discussed.

Last week, Bulgaria's Interior Minister and Deputy PM Tsvetan Tsvetanov announced that Borisov will meet the recently reelected for a second term in office US President by the end of 2012.

The Bulgarian Interior Ministry's press office said that the invitation to Borisov has been extended by John Brennan, who has stressed this would be one of the first meetings of Obama with a foreign leader after the reelection.
