Bulgarian Parliament Speaker Tsetska Tsacheva said Monday Bulgarian lawmakers would support Serbia's entry into the European Union (EU).

"We are ready to provide full support to Serbia and to give help in the areas they need because I am convinced that when our two countries are together in the EU, it is the best for the institutions and the citizens," Tsacheva told a joint press conference with her visiting Serbian counterpart Slavica Djukic-Dejanovic.

Dejanovic said any help on behalf of the Bulgarian Parliament to the National Assembly of the Republic of Serbia will be appreciated.

During their meeting, Tsacheva and Dejanovic discussed the opportunities for joint infrastructure projects and environmental protection. They also pointed out that the communication between the two countries is not good and quick enough.

Dejanovic also met Bulgarian President Georgi Parvanov, Prime Minister Boyko Borissov and Foreign Minister Nickolay Mladenov.
