Bulgarian Defense Minister Heads for Talks with Polish Counterpart

Bulgaria's Defense Minister Anyu Angelov is heading to meet with his Polish counterpart for talks, which likely have to do with the US missile shield in Europe.

According to the official statement of the Bulgarian Defense Ministry, Gen. Angelov was flying off to Poland on Sunday for a two-day visit during which he will meet with his Polish counterpart Bogdan Klich in order "to discuss NATO's new strategic concept, the transformation of the Alliance, and the deepening of the bilateral cooperation in the field of defense."

The Ministry press office also says Angelov and Klich are also going to discuss the perspectives of the Permanent Structured Cooperation of the EU in the field of defense as well as the policies and initiatives to be taken up by Poland after the country assumes the Rotating EU Presidency in July 2011.

The statement of the Bulgarian Defense Ministry makes no mention of the US missile defense in Europe but this matter will most likely be discussed by the two ministers as both Bulgarian and Poland are crucial allies of the United States in Eastern Europe.
