Angel Orbetsov: I fully agree with the last remark. And, yes, I had the honor of participating in a video promoting the Diplomatic Institute’s library with two other people and I am extremely proud of my participation.

Thank you very much for organising this event.

Today, 1897 is accepted as the year of the establishment of diplomatic relations with Iran.Continue reading “Angel Orbetsov: The interest towards researching Bulgarian-Iranian relations is mutual”
