The US announced plans to send a technical team to Bulgaria to explore the possibilities for cooperation in different areas of energy, including nuclear.

In a joint statement on Monday US president Donald Trump and Bulgarian prime minister Boyko Borissov, who is visiting the US, said they want to cooperate on “diversifying the nuclear energy sector”, but share the view of only developing energy projects which have a clear economic basis or commercial need.

They said their two countries will work together to improve Bulgaria’s energy security by supporting the licensing and use of US nuclear fuel for the Kozloduy nuclear power station.
