CIA director Panetta visits Bulgaria

The head of the Central Intelligence Agency is pledging further cooperation with Bulgaria in its efforts to deal with corruption and enhance security in the Balkan country.
CIA director Leon Panetta held talks Thursday with Prime Minister Boiko Borisov and Interior Minister Tsvetan Tsvetanov.
No further details of the talks were available. There was no word about Panetta's visit before his arrival from neighboring Romania.
Borisov's center-right government, which came to power last year, has stepped up the fight against organized crime and widespread corruption. Earlier this month, a Guantanamo Bay detainee was transferred to Bulgaria.
