USA will use three military bases and a storehouse in Bulgaria

Date: 28.03.2006

American troopers will use three bases in Bulgaria: the Novo Selo training ground, the Bezmer air base in southern Bulgaria and the Graf Ignatievo airfield in central Bulgaria. The storehouse in Aitos (eastern Bulgaria) will be at the disposal of US military, too.

Bulgarian Ambassador to NATO Lyubomir Ivanov and US Ambassador to Sofia John Beyrle announced that Bulgaria and the United States reached an agreement allowing the US troopers to use several military bases in Bulgaria.

The air bases in Bezmer and Graf Ignatievo will be starting points for the transportation of military force and equipment to Novo Selo.

"A brigade-strong US force will be deployed in Bulgaria on rotation principle - some 2,000-3,000 US rangers will use the facilities for brief periods of time," Beyrle explained.

The term of the agreement is 10 years, but each of the sides could terminate it any time on a one-year notice.

"The first US troops are expected to arrive in Bulgaria in 2007," Beyrle said.
