The ministers held a meeting in Odesa secondary school No. 31 and made relevant statements upon the talks, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

“We have discussed prospects for further Ukrainian-Bulgarian cooperation in learning the Bulgarian language by representatives of the Bulgarian community in Ukraine and the opportunity to study in this language while children learn the Ukrainian language in school. Afterwards, children may study part of the subjects in Bulgarian and another part in the state language in order to fully master Ukrainian,” Hrynevych said.

In turn, Minister Valchev stressed that he had been assured that the new law would not impede the study of the Bulgarian language in Ukraine. “Today’s talks were devoted to the establishment of a network of institutions and deepening the study of the Bulgarian language,” Bulgarian minister noted.
