Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borisov had a funny encounter with US President Barack Obama at a UN meeting in New York as they turned out to be wearing the very similar clothes.
“We look absolutely the same, it was kind-of funny – a black suit, a blue tie, and a white shirt. We even share a laugh when we stood next to each other,” Borisov told journalists in NYC.
His “twin” meeting with American President Obama took place during the official dinner after the opening of the 65th session of the UN General Assembly.
“The happy news is that Obama knows Bulgaria very well. He believes that we are a reliable strategic partner. We just had a friendly conversation,” the Bulgarian Prime Minister explained.
It is unclear if the fact that he wore the same clothes as Obama was a pure coincidence but both state leaders changed their ties for the next UN reception in the evening.
