Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman on Thursday met and thanked in Sofia the 92 Bulgarian firefighters who helped douse the Carmel forest fire earlier this week.

Lieberman, accompanied on his visit to the firefighters by Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borisov  and Foreign Minister Nikolai Mladenov, said that "friends are tested in times of crisis, and Bulgaria proved it is a true friend of Israel when it sent this large force to put out the fire."

Lieberman, according to a statement put out by his office, said during his meetings with Borisov, Mladenov and Bulgarian President Georgi Parvanov that Jews and Bulgarians have a common history and today have a common interest in increasing cooperation. He praised the significant improvement in bilateral ties over the last few years, saying this was evident in an increase in tourism and trade.
