US Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland is to meet Bulgarian officials this afternoon, the Bulgarian President's press office has said.

Energy, defense and the push for reform will reportedly be part of the agenda of her meetings.

Nuland is to talk with President Rosen Plevneliev at 15:00 local time (EET).

The website quotes sources "familiar" to the issue as saying visa requirements might also be discussed during her meetings.

Nuland, who is in charge of European and Eurasian Affaris at the US Department of State, is coming to Bulgaria as part of her Eastern European tour that began last week. Sofia is her last stop before the World Economic Forum in Davos which she is due to attend between January 20 and 23.

She also visited Bulgaria in March of 2014.
