President Barack Obama plans to meet with Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borissov at the White House on Dec. 3.

The White House says Obama will discuss a number of issues, including Bulgaria's leadership in NATO and its contributions to the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force, or ISAF, in Afghanistan.

White House officials say Obama expects to receive updates on Bulgaria's investigation into the July 18, 2012 suicide bombing in Burgas that killed five Israeli tourists and a Bulgarian bus driver along with ongoing rule of law and judicial reforms.
