"After decades of focusing on fighting terrorism and enhancing peace away from our region, the Alliance is returning to its core mission of being the guarantor of security and territorial integrity of its members," President Rumen Radev said before the opening of the NATO summit in Madrid.


"The new security context requires new approaches and solutions in order to prevent the war in Ukraine from expanding its territorial scope," Radev said.

"It is of strategic importance for us not only to apply leading technological developments to strengthen Bulgaria's defence capabilities, but also to integrate our arms industry and military science in NATO's leading technological and production projects," Radev added.
