The newly appointed Bulgarian Foreign Minister, Mr. Kristian Vigenin, had a meeting, at his request, with Ambassador Rowan on 6 June. The meeting was one in a round of introductory meetings with Ambassadors in Sofia. The Minister recalled his good relations with Irish colleagues during his time as a Member of the European Parliament and discussed matters of mutual interest in a European context. He offered his best wishes for a successful conclusion to our term of office as EU Presidency.
