Bulgarian Cabinet okays US military bases location

Date: 22.04.2006

Bulgaria's Council of Ministers gave green light to the location of US military bases on Bulgarian territory.

Bulgaria and the US reached a final agreement allowing the US military to use several military bases in Bulgaria on March 24.

The US will be able to use three Bulgarian military bases - the Novo Selo range and the Bezmer both near Bulgaria's border with Turkey, and the Graf Ignatievo airfield in central Bulgaria. US forces will also use a storage facility near Bulgaria's port of Burgas.

The bases will be used for the training of 2000 to 3000 US soldiers.

The agreement, which will be valid for 10 years, must be ratified by Bulgaria's parliament. It provides mechanisms for bilateral consultations over the actions of the US forces in Bulgaria.

The agreement for the US bases location is to be signed during the visit of US Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice to Sofia April 27.
