The newly appointed Italian Foreign Minister and former EU Commissioner on Justice Franco Frattini has recommended to his Bulgarian counterpart Ivaylo Kalfin that Bulgaria should have a more efficient dialogue with the European Commission.

The two foreign ministers met Friday night at the Farnesina Palace in Rome as part of Kalfin's two-day visit to Italy.

"I appreciate Frattini's sincerity", the Bulgarian Foreign Minister commented on the recommendations.

Franco Frattini told Kalfin that Bulgaria could rely on Italy's support for the continuing of the reforms in its problematic sectors, the Bulgarian private Darik Radio reported.

The Italian Foreign Minister has stressed that Bulgaria had achieved an enormous progress in the field of justice and interior affairs in the recent years, but that it had more issues to deal with.

"The relations between Bulgaria and Italy are in a perfect state", Kalfin remark in turn adding that Italy was Bulgaria's third most important trading partner, and the third largest foreign investor.
