Excerpts from the transcript:

Dmitry Medvedev: Mr Prime Minister,

Welcome to Moscow,

Bilateral contact has been intensified considerably of late. Recently, we met with the President of Bulgaria, and we are now happy to welcome you as the head of the Bulgarian Government.

Today, you will have an important meeting with the President of Russia. And now we can discuss certain parameters of our trade and economic cooperation and various other issues of relevance to our countries.

I cordially welcome you once again.

Boyko Borisov (via interpreter): Good afternoon. I would like to greet you on behalf of Deputy Prime Minister Tomislav Donchev, the Minister of Culture, the Minister of Finance, the Minister of Energy and on behalf of our Ambassador.

We were able to discuss a number of issues. Let’s not repeat them. I will be happy to use this opportunity to discuss our economic relations, tourism, questions linked with the fight against terrorism, energy projects in areas where we could help each other and all other issues that you think appropriate.

Indeed, the modern world is quite complicated and faces permanent conflicts. And I am very much looking forward to speaking with President Vladimir Putin. We hope that the situation in Syria will be resolved in the near future because we and the whole of Europe are facing serious pressure from the wave of immigrants.
