President Radev: "To Us in Bulgaria, NATO Remains an Extremely Important Organization"

At a joint news conference with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg on the second day of a two-day working visit to Brussels Tuesday, the new Bulgarian President, Rumen Radev, said that NATO remains very important for Bulgaria. "To us in Bulgaria, NATO remains an extremely important organization to defend the safety and security of the allies and to guarantee stability beyond the borders of NATO," said he. 
It is his first overseas trip in his capacity as Bulgarian head of State after he won the presidential elections late last year. On his first day in Brussels, he met with the leaders of the European Commission, the European Council and the European Parliament. 
Radev said after the meeting with Secretary General Stoltenberg that his decision to first visit Brussels as President of Bulgaria "shows the importance that Bulgaria attaches to NATO as an organization of shared values and shared responsibilities to our collective security and defence".
He vowed Bulgaria's support for the NATO efforts to defend and deter and said his country is part of these efforts and will continue to make "all it takes to guarantee our contribution to common security".
