Prime Minister Borissov Confers with NATO Secretary General Stoltenberg in Brussels

Prime Minister Borissov Confers with NATO Secretary General Stoltenberg in Brussels

12.12.2019
December 12 (BTA correspondent Nikolay Jeliazkov) - Emerging from a meeting with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg in Brussels on Thursday, Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borissov said that NATO is the only guarantor of security in the Balkan region. "We are arming ourselves in order to be strong and deter any plans against our territory and our alliance," said Borissov. He added that work is underway on the Belene N-plant and the Balkan Stream pipeline in order to keep dialogue with Russia open and maintain balance which allows Bulgaria to play a key role in the region and the Black Sea. "We are not doing anything covert. The agreement signed for the NATO coordination centre in Varna is enjoying huge support across the alliance," said Borissov. He went on to say that Bulgaria has not pressed for a coordination centre, arguing that the country has coordination functions now with five naval exercises in the Black Sea in 2019. Borissov reiterated his position against a NATO naval group in the Black Sea. The Bulgarian Prime Minister said that his meeting with Stoltenberg discussed Bulgaria's contribution to North Macedonia's entry to NATO with the signing of the friendship treaty. The PM recalled that in addition to new fighter jets, Bulgaria will purchase two minehunters from the Netherlands and may negotiate with Norway the purchase of a decommissioned submarine if the price is right and if the economy remains stable. NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said that in 2019 Bulgaria celebrates its 15th anniversary of joining NATO. Bulgaria is contributing to NATO and to the shared security in many different ways and to Black Sea security. The security environment in the Black Sea region has changed and NATO will strengthen its presence in response, said Stoltenberg. The NATO Secretary General welcomed the increase of Bulgarian defence spending to 3.25 per cent of GDP in 2019 which puts Bulgaria among the nine NATO countries which meet their target expenditures of more than 2 per cent of GDP. These efforts make NATO stronger and Bulgaria safer, said Stoltenberg. ZH/PP Source: Brussels, http://www.bta.bg/en/c/DF/id/2120600
