“Thank you for your good cooperation during the pandemic. We want it not only to continue, but to expand and deepen, “the Prime Minister explained and reiterated the desire of our country to continue the exchange of good practices against COVID-19, as well as partnership in scientific and research activities. “In Bulgaria there is a strong interest in the Israeli development of a new type of vaccine and new therapies for the treatment of the disease. That is why we will be happy to establish contacts in both directions, “said Prime Minister Borissov.
During the conversation it was emphasized that thanks to the timely and adequate measures against the coronavirus, Bulgaria allowed a very low rate of infection with COVID-19 and achieved good results in treatment. It is very important to be careful when easing the measures and not to allow another sharp rise in the number of patients, the two prime ministers agreed.
Another focus of the telephone conversation was bilateral economic relations, which are developing at a steady pace, but have not yet reached their potential. “By overcoming the consequences of the crisis, our cooperation can become more active as we work for the implementation of joint business, energy, innovation, pharmaceutical and cultural projects,” said Boyko Borissov.
This year marks the 30th anniversary of the restoration of diplomatic relations between Bulgaria and Israel.
