Bulgarian Defence Minister Nikolay Nenchev called for urgently devising a concept on counteracting hybrid threats.

The minister revealed that he had already raised the issue at the level of NATO defence ministers, Darik radio reports.

The topic will be also discussed at the forthcoming meeting of EU defence ministers in Luxembourg.

According to Nenchev, experts from all institutions should participate in devising the concept due to the particularly specific nature of hybrid warfare.

The minister had previously mentioned in a report that hybrid warfare is related to information and energy dependencies.

In his words, the concept should feature an exact definition of hybrid warfare in the first place as well measures, which should be taken in counteracting it.

Nenchev assured that he will attempt to attract the attention of other countries to the issue.
