In an interview with “International Relations” magazine, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said that despite the complicated situation in Europe, Russian-Bulgarian relations have recently been developing dynamically and high-level political dialogue has intensified. Moscow expects the positive dynamics of political contacts to strengthen practical cooperation. Wide opportunities for joint efforts are provided by the Turkish Stream gas pipeline project, whose continuation on the territory of Bulgaria would strengthen its energy security. Good prospects for deepening cooperation are also created by Sofia's decision to resume construction of Belene NPP. The growth of trade between the two countries is weak but we are confident that active cooperation between the Russian and Bulgarian experts will contribute to the substantial strengthening of trade and economic relations, Minister Lavrov said in the interview.
