Nato forces in South Eastern Europe should be increased, Bulgarian President Plevneliev says

Increasing Nato forces in the South Eastern Europe region, conducting more joint exercises and making more active use of joint military facilities in Bulgaria were among proposals put forward by Bulgarian President Rossen Plevneliev at a meeting of heads of state of eight Central and Eastern European countries that are members of Nato.

The meeting in Warsaw on July 22 was held to prepare for the Nato summit to be held in September in Wales. The forum involved the heads of state of Bulgaria, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Hungary and the Czech Republic.

Events in Ukraine had shown that “we cannot take peace and security in Europe for granted,” Plevneliev said.
