Energy partnership along the Israel-Cyprus-Greece axis is strategic, said Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borissov during a meeting with the visiting President of Cyprus Nicos Anastasiades.

Sofia supports the EastMed project. It is of major geostrategic importance to the development of the region and of Europe. Constructing the Greece-Bulgaria gas interconnection is crucial as an entry structure for the import of gas from alternative sources in Southeastern Europe, including from the Eastern Mediterranean gas pipeline, Boyko Borissov said.

The discussions also focused on current European issues, among which migration, the enlargement of the Western Balkans, the multiannual financial framework and climate change
