Bulgarian President Rosen Asenov Plevneliev seeks strong high tech cooperation between his country and Israel.  Plevneliev, at a welcome reception at the official residence of President Shimon Peres on Monday, said that he was delighted so early in his presidency to be able to visit the Holy Land.

His country has gone through highly dramatic changes in recent years and has opted to be a progressive democracy he said. Its relations with Israel are strong on many levels but he was particularly keen for more intensive high tech cooperation given that Israel has a reputation for being one of the most advanced high tech nations in the world.

Peres told Plevneliev that Bulgaria will always have a special place in the hearts of Israelis for its refusal to give up its Jews to the Nazis during World War Two. Plevneliev in turn invited Peres to be Bulgaria's guest of honor in Sofia next March when Bulgaria commemorates the 70th anniversary of its rescue of its Jewish population.
