Prime minister Boyko Borisov has suggested at a meeting with Montenegro’s president Filip Vujanović for Bulgaria to use the high-voltage submarine link between that country and Italy, which is yet to be completed, in order to export electricity, Hellenic Business Council in Bulgaria reported on its website.

Borisov and Vujanović met at the Council of Ministers’ building in Sofia, according to the press-office of the Bulgarian government. The two discussed opportunities for cooperation in the spheres of energy and tourism.

Work is currently underway to update the existing agreement in the sphere of tourism and the launch of a direct flight Sofia-Podgorica is being discussed, according to the media statement. The implementation of the measures included in the bilateral program for scientific and technical cooperation is also expected to have a positive economic impact. Borisov confirmed Bulgaria’s support for Montenegro’s accession to the European Union and NATO and offered help in the negotiation process.
