Bulgaria: Bulgarian Admiral: Modernization of our Army Can’t Compare to the Pace in Neighboring Countries BGNES

The Chief of Defense, Admiral Emil Eftimov, called for a broad political consensus on projects to modernize the Bulgarian army. It currently "does not correspond to the pace of armament and rearmament of neighboring countries," said Admiral Eftimov in a special interview with BNR.

Against the background of the lack of parliament adm. Eftimov warned:

"We do not correspond to the pace of armament and rearmament of neighboring countries. Due to the fact that there is no consensus for a shock development of the army's capabilities for large-scale modernization. And I am afraid that over the years it will be inadequate to what is developing in the region. It's not a good prognosis."

For this reason, when in the first quarter of 2022 our country receives a response to the request for 8 new fighter jets, there must be a parliament to approve the new financial parameters.

Parliament will also have to approve the investment cost for 3 coordinate radars, Eftimov reminded:

"What I hope is a broad political, public consensus for the army's modernization projects to work."
