Borissov inspected the Bulgarian construction site with visiting Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic, the Bulgarian national television reported.
Construction has continued despite the coronavirus outbreak, the prime minister added. He said 280 kilometers of pipes had already been laid. The pipeline is expected to be joined to the Serbian link in near future. ■
