The Address | Benghazi – Libya
Bulgaria’s Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs Ekaterina Zaharieva met with the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Tripoli-based Government of National Accord (GNA) Mohammed Tahir Siala in Brussels to discuss the upcoming visit to Bulgaria of the Head of GNA Fayez al-Sarraj, said the press office of the Bulgarian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
A week ago Bulgaria’s Prime Minister Boyko Borissov had a telephone conversation with al-Saraj and invited him to visit Bulgaria, which he accepted. Invitations were also made to the foreign and home affairs ministers.
“We remember the good work many Bulgarian companies did in our country, we have to restore our relations to their previous level,” Minister Siala said at the meeting. “All stadiums in Libya are built by Bulgarian companies and are still in excellent condition. Your workers are very industrious,” he added.
“We need to strengthen our bilateral ties, especially in the field of economy. Our engineers and doctors played an important role in Libya’s public and economic life,” Minister Zaharieva said.
The two ministers agreed that the visit of the Libyan prime minister to Bulgaria be accompanied by a business forum to discuss the resumption of Bulgarian export to Libya.
