A senior Bulgarian member of the European Parliament called for boosting Tehran-Sofia relations. “Iran and Bulgaria have the needed capacities to boost cooperation in different fields, especially in economic and trade fields,” Maria Gabriel said in a recent meeting with Iranian Ambassador in Sofia Abdollah Norouzi, Fars News Agency reported. Gabriel and Norouzi stressed the need for increasing trade transactions between the two sides. The two officials underlined the importance of enhancing mutual interactions between Iran and Bulgaria. In early July, Iranian and Bulgarian officials signed three agreements to broaden mutual cooperation in different fields.

The cooperation pacts covered such areas as technology, communications, joint investment and industry.
