The meeting in Washington yesterday between Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borissov and United States President Barack Obama was a historic moment in Bulgarian-American relations, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said. Minister Nickolay Mladenov and Secretary Clinton held talks today in Brussels in the framework of a meeting of NATO foreign ministers.

Minister Mladenov highlighted energy security and diversification, the abolition of visas for Bulgarian citizens, and social insurance for Bulgarians in the United States as important issues in the countries' bilateral co-operation.

The crisis in Syria and its impact on regional security, as well as the Euro-Atlantic perspectives of the Western Balkans, were among the topics discussed.

The Foreign Minister conferred on the US Secretary of State the Bulgarian Foreign Ministry's highest honour, the Golden Laurel Branch, in recognition of Hillary Clinton's contribution to the development of Bulgarian-US relations.
