Bulgaria, Greece vow to support Western Balkans on EU path

Bulgaria’s foreign minister has praised his country’s relationship with Greece, and vowed to support the EU prospects of the Western Balkans.

In a meeting with his Greek counterpart Stavros Dimas on Wednesday, Bulgarian Foreign Minister Nikolai Mladenov said that Greece is Bulgaria’s priority partner in the European Union and in the Balkans.

He added that the two had compiled a comprehensive agenda for the second joint meeting of governments in the spring.

Mladenov and Dimas also discussed ways to support the European prospects of Western Balkan countries, according to a statement from the Foreign Ministry in Sofia.

“The day that our neighbours meet the requirements of EU legislation and demonstrate that they have good neighbourly relations and regional co-operation, they should become EU members,” Mladenov said.
