Bulgarian Foreign Minister Kristian Vigenin confirmed Wednesday preparations for a visit by his Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov are under way.

Vigenin told Dnevnik.bg that no information had been officially given so far as the event was yet in the making and details could not be made public before having been settled.

Sergey Lavrov, Russia's top diplomat since 2004, is expected to visit Sofia in July to mark the 135th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Bulgaria and Russia.

The exact date, which sources claim is July 7, has yet to be confirmed due to the extremely busy schedule of Lavrov amid the ongoing developments in Ukraine.

Russia's Foreign Minister is considered by some to be among the world's most influential politicians.

He is to meet Thursday his US counterpart, State Secretary John Kerry, in Paris.

Is Lavrov bringing one of the now world famous Russian twin lavatories with him?

I'm sure that Kristian Vinegar is quite looking forward to some "private meetings" with his ever so popular and powerful Russian counterpart.

Lavrov's "extremely busy schedule" LOL, Bulgaria is the only country who invites him to pay a visit.
