U.S. Congress Delegation visited Bulgaria
From August 23-25, 2021, a delegation from the U.S. Congress visited Bulgaria to meet with government officials, U.S. business representatives, and others for talks on defense and security in the region, the economic environment, and the broader bilateral relationship. Members of the delegation also explored cultural sites that have been restored in part with U.S. funding. The delegation included six Senators: Richard Shelby, Mike Crapo, John Cornyn, Deb Fischer, John Kennedy, and Roger Marshall.
This visit, the second large delegation of Congresspeople from the United States to Bulgaria this summer, underscores the importance of the U.S.-Bulgaria strategic partnership to the U.S. government and to the security and prosperity of the region. The delegation’s trip to Bulgaria was part of a wider European tour.
