The Foreign Ministers of Bulgaria and Serbia, Ekaterina Zaharieva and Ivica Dacic, have held a telephone conversation. The two ministers, who are also deputy prime ministers of their countries, found that due to timely measures, the epidemiological situation caused by the pandemic has improved significantly. Therefore, the full normalization of relations and the continuation of cooperation has begun. 

The two ministers said that a constant level of communication was maintained during the Covid-19 crisis, which also led to the May 19 agreement to normalize the regime of entry and the opening of border crossings. 
Serbia's FM Dacic has invited Zaharieva to visit Serbia.
