Defense Minister Nikolay Nenchev is set to attend a meeting of defense ministers in Brussels and sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on cybersecurity.

The document will seal the country's commitment to building up defense capacities of national networks and critical infrastructure.

NATO needs to do more on "hybrid and cyber defense, maritime security, and exercises," the Alliance's Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg has said ahead in a press conference ahead of the meeting.

Referring to hybrid warfare, he has also said:

"We see that Russia is providing a lot of, is supporting different groups trying to influence domestic debate in different countries in Europe and we see a lot of propaganda.

But NATO will not counter propaganda with propaganda. Our message is that in the long run the truth will prevail so the best answer to propaganda is not more propaganda but the best answer to propaganda is facts, the truth and open democratic debate."
