Bulgaria's Prime Minister Boyko Borisov planted a pine tree outside Yerevan's Armenian Genocide Museum during his visit to the country on Tuesday.

"A deep bow to the victims of this horrible tragedy. Such tragic events should never be forgotten," Borisov wrote in the book of the Armenian genocide museum, according to the Focus news agency.

The Bulgarian PM also watered the tree once planted by former Bulgarian President Georgi Parvanov (2002-2012).

Borisov's visit to the Southern Caucasus states comes on the invitation of the Prime Ministers of Georgia and Armenia, Nikoloz Gilauri and Tigran Sargsyan.

The PM is accompanied by Minister of Transport Ivailo Moskovsky, Labor Minister Totyu Mladenov and Deputy Foreign Minister Ivan Naydenov.
