Bulgarian Military Slashes 30% of Senior Officers

Date: 11.06.2010

The Bulgarian military will lay off about 30% of the senior commanders of all types of armed forces, Defense Minister Anyu Angelov has announced.

The layoffs in the headquarters of the Bulgarian Army, Navy, and Air Force must be completed by July 1, 2010, the Minister said in Varna Saturday. They have to be approved by the government over the upcoming week as part of the austerity measures of the Defense Ministry.

Gen. Angelov also said his team was working a special draft law for Bulgaria's reservist forces.

On Saturday, the Defense Minister and the US Ambassador to Bulgaria, James Warlick, awarded certificates to participants in a training seminar entitled “NATO's Experience with Respect to Equality in the Armed Forces”, a project aimed at gender equality in the army and equal career opportunities.

Angelov and His Excellency visited a ship of the US Second Fleet visiting the port of Varna.

“We expect to continue to work in close cooperation in combating pirates off the coast of Somalia,” the US Ambassador stated.
