Bulgaria Must Buy New Jet Fighters - Foreign Minister

Bulgaria should buy new jet fighters in view of the situation in Ukraine, foreign minister Kristiyan Vigenin said.

Bulgaria should shortly adopt a decision to modernise its air force and buy a new type of jet fighters in order to put an end to its dependency on Russia for the maintenance of its Soviet-era combat aircraft, Vigenin  said in an interview for the state-run Bulgarian National Television. He, however, noted that for the time being the maintenance of Bulgaria's combat air fleet is not at risk.

"The pace of this process depends both on us and on our partners, who have to indicate if they can supply aircraft to us," Vigenin also said.

Bulgaria joined the North Atlantic Treaty Organization in 2004.
