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.
