Foreign Minister Kotzias meets with the Foreign Minister of Bulgaria, Daniel Mito

Within the framework of the separate bilateral ministerial meetings that took place today, Monday, 1 August 2016, in Sofia, at the Greece-Bulgaria High-Level Cooperation Council, Foreign Minister Nikos Kotzias met with his Bulgarian counterpart, Daniel Mitov.

During the meeting, the two Foreign Ministers reaffirmed the excellent climate of cooperation between the two countries and decided on the activation of a number of joint collaborations between the two countries within the European Union – beyond the already existing cooperation within the EU – as well as in the Balkan space. More specifically, they decided on the coordination of the two countries’ actions on issues related to the study of the repercussions of the UK referendum and to the debate that has opened on the future of Europe.

The two Foreign Ministers subsequently signed – within the framework of the High-Level Cooperation Council – the Executive Programme for Bilateral Educational and Cultural cooperation for the years 2016-2018.
