Scheduled to take place in Sofia from May 24 to 27, the spring session of the NATO Parliamentary Assembly serves as a platform for parliamentary representatives from NATO member states to convene and discuss pertinent issues.

Regarding the principles governing the assembly, Minister Zapryanov emphasized the avoidance of bilateral disputes between member nations, emphasizing the importance of maintaining unity within NATO. He stressed the need to prevent acts of animosity towards allied countries, citing the border between Bulgaria and the Republic of Macedonia as an example of a boundary shared by NATO allies where such conflicts should be avoided.
