Bulgaria PM arrives for two-day visit

Bulgaria’s Prime Minister Boyko Borissov arrived on Wednesday for a two-day visit expected to focus on regional security, energy and trade issues.

His visit comes at a time of strain in Bulgarian-Turkish ties. Both countries recently expelled a low level diplomat from the other amid tensions stemming from what is seen in Ankara as Sofia’s siding with Russia following Turkey’s downing of a Russian fighter-plane last year.

Following the breakdown of Israeli-Turkish ties after the 2010 Mavi Marmara incident, Israel grew closer to all of Turkey’s historic rivals, including Greece, Cyprus, Bulgaria and Romania.
