Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs Ekaterina Zaharieva discussed in a telephone conversation with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov the bilateral cooperation between Bulgaria and Russia in the context of the coronavirus pandemic and the global response against the spread of COVID-19, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs reported .
At the invitation of Ekaterina Zaharieva, a visit of Sergei Lavrov was planned for April 27, but it was postponed because of the coronavirus crisis. The Bulgarian foreign minister expressed hope that, when circumstances permit, Sergei Lavrov will visit Bulgaria by the end of the year.

“The situation in the world is new. The countries are at different stages and some have not yet reached the peak of the crisis, but there needs to be a coordinated approach to solve it. Multilateralism is needed now more than ever, because for the virus there are no borders and ethnicities. All countries in the world need to work in closer cooperation,” said Ekaterina Zaharieva.

The two ministers expressed satisfaction with the the development of bilateral ties and established dialogue, including during Ekaterina Zaharieva's visit to Moscow on October 21, 2019.

“We have achieved a lot in the development of bilateral relations. Despite the crisis, projects that are important for both countries are developing well. “Balkan Stream” is implemented on schedule. We plan to wrap it up by the end of the year,” Ekaterina Zaharieva said.

Sergey Lavrov stressed the desire of the Russian side after the end of the coronavirus crisis to carry out the planned bilateral meetings and work in bilateral relations to return to normal.

“The political dialogue between our two countries is developing very positively. I am sure that after this crisis is over, after the resumption of normal diplomatic activity, we will continue to build on what we achieved last year,” Sergei Lavrov said.

The two ministers agreed in the meantime, without waiting for the end of the coronavirus crisis, to exchange one of the documents planned for signing during Sergei Lavrov's visit — a protocol for the exchange of ratification documents of the Protocol amending The Treaty on Social Security between Bulgaria and Russia.
