Bulgarian Prime Minister Plamen Oresharski has vowed to intensify bilateral economic ties with Uzbekistan.

Oresharski visited the city of Samarkand on Wednesday at the end of his official visit to Vietnam, according to reports of the Bulgarian Telegraph Agency (BTA).

Bulgaria's Prime Minister held a working meeting with the First Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister Rustam Azimov.

The two discussed the bilateral relations of Bulgaria and Uzbekistan with an emphasis on economic issues.

They also exchanged views on the organization of a sitting of the joint intergovernmental committee and of political consultations in June.

The opportunity for Bulgarian Prime Minister paying a visit to Uzbekistan by end-2014 was also discussed.

Earlier on Wednesday, Oresharski visited a Bulgarian-owned textile mill in the Vietnamese city of Hue.

The textile mill absorbed an investment of BGN 17 M in 2008.

The factory employs around 450 Vietnamese and around 10 Bulgarian specialists on a rotating basis.

In a Wednesday statement, Plamen Oresharski pointed out that he had discussed broad forms of cooperation in the social and economic sphere during his meetings with his Vietnamese counterpart, adding that business representatives had also met with potential partners.

Bashing a country? Huh? Do you actually understand English? Do you have an IQ that is even slightly above 70? Obviously not!

The only "thing" I was bashing is Oresharski - and he isn't "Uzbekistan", dunderhead.

Bashing a country that you have absolutely no idea about (Uzbekistan) just shows how brainwashed you both are by western and american thinking, not to mention using the word "LMAO" after your every post is extremely childish.

Uzbekistan is a beautiful country and is rich in culture. I'm personally happy Bulgaria is trying to improve relations with countries other than the EU as it's a sign of independance and possibly a lot cheaper.

but I am sure he had a lot of meetings with petty officials in which he made it very clear that the Bulgarian minority in Uzbekistan needs to be granted full minority rights. I mean those rights that Bulgaria is NOT giving to any of its ethnic minorities on its own territory.

Or did I mix this up with Uganda? Uruguay? Uttar Pradesh?

Oh, and I bet he also invited all Uzbek "tax fraudsters"...errr investors to come to Bulgaria, and to NOT buy the land on which they are supposed to invest their bucks.

Hamilton George is momentarily unavailable as he is jerking off with excitement at the news that Oresharksi is visiting emerging market Uzbekistan. LOL.

Funny to see how Oresharksi isn't even granted a meeting with the President or Prime Minister of Uzbekistan but only with the Deputy Prime Minister. LOL. Even Uzbekistan's President is too important to meet Oresharski. Those emerging markets are really interested in Bulgaria. Hahahahaha.

Time to head home Oresharski, your trip to the EMERGING MARKETS of Vietnam -where he inaugurated a Bulgarian restaurant - and meeting the Second Deputy of the Prime Minister is becoming an embarrassment to this country.
