Bulgarian PM Glavchev will participate in the NATO Summit in Washington

Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs Dimitar Glavchev will take part in the NATO Summit, which will be held from 09 to 11 July in Washington.

During the summit, a ceremony will be held to commemorate the 75th anniversary of NATO's founding, marking the importance and role of the Alliance in the current environment of serious security challenges, against the backdrop of the ongoing third year of Russian military aggression against Ukraine.

Key outcomes of the meeting are expected to include decisions related to strengthening NATO's deterrence and defence capabilities, continuing and institutionalising the Alliance's political and practical support to Ukraine, and deepening relations with NATO partners in the Indo-Pacific region.

The Forum will include an Allies format meeting, a NATO-Ukraine Council meeting with the participation of Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelensky, and a Partnership format with Indo-Pacific partners Australia, New Zealand, Japan and the Republic of Korea, and with the Presidents of the European Council and the European Commission.

Thirty-six heads of government and state are expected to attend in the US capital. The delegation led by Prime Minister Glavchev in Washington will include Defence Minister Atanas Zapryanov, Chief of Defence Admiral Emil Eftimov, Deputy Foreign Minister Maria Angelieva and Col. Nevyana Miteva and Deputy Minister of Defence Adelina Nikolova. | BGNES
