YEREVAN, APRIL 3, ARMENPRESS. The visit of the delegation of the
Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borisov will open a new page for
the development of economic, social and political relations between
Armenia and Bulgaria, Armenia's PM Tigran Sargsyan stated at a joint
press conference with his Bulgarian counterpart. "We have ancient-long
cooperation roots but unfortunately the current level of bilateral
economic cooperation is not satisfactory. It is necessary to give new
impetus for their development," Tigran Sargsyan said. Armenia's PM
stressed that soon the Armenian government will send a delegation of
businessmen to Bulgaria. Tigran Sargsyan said there is big potential
for cooperation and the two states should open new page in bilateral
relations.

"We think it is necessary to increase the contacts between the citizens
of the two states. The cooperation may develop in the spheres of
tourism, pharmaceutics and IT," Tigran Sargsyan stressed.

Boyko Borisov said the relations between the two countries develop
excellently in the sphere of culture. "Unlike the economy field, the
cooperation in cultural and scientific spheres is ongoing dynamically.

We may serve as a bridge for Armenia on the way to the EU. Bulgaria
is ready to assist Armenia in the European integration process,"
Borisov said.

Tigran Sargsyan stressed that Bulgaria's European integration
experience is of prior significance for Armenia and thanked Boyko
Borisov for sharing it.
