Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu phoned his Bulgarian counterpart, Boiko Borisov, on Thursday, a day after Borisov quit amid days of protests over the country’s struggling economy. Netanyahu made the call to express appreciation for recent close cooperation between the two nations.

According to a statement put out by the Prime Minister’s Office, Netanyahu said he hoped this cooperation would continue into the future.Borisov was head of a Center- Right government that was considered one of Israel’s strongest supporters inside the EU. Specifically, Netanyahu expressed Israel’s deep appreciation for Borisov’s courage and determination in investigating the Burgas terrorist attack, in which five Israelis and a Bulgarian bus driver were killed last summer, and in pointing an accusing finger at Hezbollah.

“This courageous stand is in line with the values of the democratic world, and worthy of its support,” Netanyahu said.
