Viktoria Boyadzhieva, Ankara, Monitor correspondent
Prime Minister Boyko Borisov and his Turkish counterpart Binali Yildirim discussed the prospect of Bulgaria getting natural gas supplies via the territory of its south neighbour at their meeting in Ankara on 13 June. The Turkish premier used the platform to underline Ankara’s expectations that the government in Sofia will support the country’s European integration. “Bulgaria and Turkey are exemplary neighbours. The EU is our family and Turkey is our largest European neighbour. We are directly affected by the state of relations between these two parties,” Borisov stressed following his meeting with Yildirim, at whose invitation he had a one-day visit to Turkey on his birthday.
