US to fund establishment of Bulgarian naval surveillance system
The United States will finance under international military funds the establishment of a coastal radio location system for navigation control and safeguarding Bulgaria’s sea border, local press reported Thursday citing Bulgarian Naval Forces Commander Vice Admiral Minko Kavaldzhiev.
Kavaldzhiev announced this during a joint news conference held together with the visiting US Chief of Naval Operations Admiral Gary Roughead in Bulgarian Black Sea city of Varna. Kavaldzhiev said that the contract is expected to be signed soon so that the establishment of the system could be started. Bulgaria is also working with the United States under an exchange of staff project, under which Bulgarian seamen are trained at US ships.
Admiral Roughead told the news conference that many issues related to security in seas and oceans will be discussed at the annual meeting of the European naval forces commanders, which will start on Friday, as unfortunately, sea ways are also used for trafficking of weapons, drugs and people.
