The Prime Ministers of Bulgaria and Norway have agreed on the need to boost economic relations between the two countries.

The two held one-to-one talks Tuesday in Sofia, after Norway's Kjell Magne Bondevik arrived on an official visit to the country.

During a joint press conference with the Bulgarian Premier Simeon Saxe-Coburg, the high-ranked guest disclosed that last year 23,000 Norwegian tourists have visited Bulgaria. That figure is expected to grow this year, Bondevik has said.

He has also voiced belief that after Bulgaria's planned European Union (EU) entry in 2007 the country's cooperation and trade with Norway will be further enhanced.

Kjell Magne Bondevik pledged that his country would support the five Bulgarians on HIV trial in Libya. He disclosed that Norway and the European Commission (EC) are currently possible ways of aiding the nurses.
