Egypt’s FM heading to Bulgaria Wednesday to discuss bilateral relations

Egypt’s Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry will visit Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria, on Wednesday to discuss bilateral and regional issues of mutual interest in light of the importance Egypt attaches to strengthening relations with its partners in Eastern Europe, according to a statement by Egyptian foreign ministry spokesperson Ahmed Hafez.

Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borissov visited Egypt last October, when the two countries agreed to form a joint committee headed by the foreign ministers of the two nations.

Hafez said that during his visit, Shoukry will meet with the Bulgarian president, the prime minister and the foreign minister to discuss boosting bilateral relations in the political, economic and trade fields.

Countering terrorism, transnational crime, irregular migration, and crises in the Middle East will also be at the top of the agenda.
