Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borisov spoke with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, signaling his country may follow others who recently recognized Jerusalem as the capital of the State of Israel.
According to a statement made at the start of the weekly cabinet meeting by PM Binyamin Netanyahu on Sunday, 11 Tammuz, “Yesterday, after Shabbat was out, I spoke with my friend, Bulgarian Prime minister Boyko Borisov. He decided – after having visited here several days previously – as a first step, to open an honorary consulate here in Jerusalem. He made the effort to explain to me, in our conversation, that this consul will not deal only with Bulgarian affairs in Jerusalem, but with Bulgarian affairs in the entire State of Israel. I told him that this was a welcome step and that I hoped it will quickly lead to the opening of the official and complete Bulgarian Embassy in Jerusalem.
