Bulgaria's Foreign Minister Ekaterina Zaharieva discussed, with her Ukrainian counterpart Dmytro Kuleba, Kiev’s plans for an administrative-territorial reform of Bolhrad region.

In a telephone conversation, Minister Zaharieva asked Ukraine to reconsider its position and take into consideration the opinion of the 200,000-strong Bulgarian ethnic community in the region who do not agree with the change. The Bulgarian minority in Ukraine is a natural bridge of friendship and cooperation between the two countries and its rights should be respected, Ekaterina Zaharieva urged. She invited Dmytro Kuleba to visit Bulgaria. The two also discussed the travels of Ukrainian tourists to Bulgaria.
