“Peace is achieved when every aggressor knows that he will be punished if he attacks,” the Bulgarian Prime Minister, Academician Nikolai Denkov, said in his speech at the opening of the conference, which was held with the participation of the military attaches of Bulgaria’s foreign embassies. . “We need to improve our military capability in order for our country to find peace, because the dangers have not gone away,” he said.
Increasing military capacity will be one of the government’s tasks. According to the prime minister, this should not be piecemeal. Army modernization and personnel development must go hand in hand. This must be assessed not only in the context of Bulgaria’s capacity, but also in the context of Bulgaria’s relations with its partners in the European Union (EU) and NATO. At the same time, the development of applied scientific activities in the military field, which is the tradition of our country, should be promoted.
According to his testimony, the delay in the development of military capabilities for at least several years is not due to economic difficulties, because, despite the various crises, Bulgaria is developing relatively well. The problem is the political uncertainty about how we want to develop within the two unions. In recent years, Bulgaria has sent mixed signals to its EU and NATO partners. This stirs up tension and even division in a society with a national security issue. For this reason, we are still unable to take full advantage of the opportunities presented by joining these two powerful alliances, both in terms of military and political capacity.
The Prime Minister thanked the military attaches for their special role as military diplomats, military intelligence officers and parliamentarians around the world, who have earned Bulgaria confidence in joint networks and their government relies on their assistance in making the right decisions.
