Bulgaria President to Lead NATO Summit Delegation
Bulgaria's President, Georgi Parvanov, will lead the Bulgarian delegation for the historical NATO summit.
The NATO summit will be held Friday and Saturday in Kehl, Germany and Strasbourg, France and will mark the 60th anniversary of the establishment of the Alliance.
Parvanov is scheduled to participate Friday in the working dinner hosted by outgoing NATO Secretary General, Jaap de Hoop Scheffer.
The President will take part Saturday in the meeting of the Alliance's leaders.
The delegation includes the Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister, Ivaylo Kalfin, Defense Minister, Nikolay Tsonev, the Chair of the Parliamentary Foreign Policy Commission, Solomon Passy, the Permanent Representative of Bulgaria in NATO, Lyubomir Ivanov.
Solomon Passy is the Bulgarian nominee for the new NATO Secretary General. The much anticipated selection will be announced at the summit. The mandate of the current Secretary, Jaap de Hoop Scheffer, ends on July 31.
The summit is also scheduled as a celebration of the return of France in the NATO structures since leaving them in 1966.
The forum will begin with 26 Member States and end with 28 because Albania and Croatia will join the Alliance during the summit. Two poles to hoist the flags of the new members have already been mounted in front of the NATO headquarters in Brussels.
