The US will select the locations for its military bases in Bulgaria within a month, the Bulgarian defence minister said.

Nikolay Svinarov said that there would be three US bases in the country.

Earlier, the Bulgarian Chief of Army Headquarters General Nikola Kolev has said that American experts were set for visiting Bulgaria to inspect some probable locations for the military bases.

According to Minister Svinarov, the facilities will be of use for the Bulgarian Army as well. The US could help for the modernization of Bulgaria's Army in return for using military bases in the country, the minister was cited as saying Saturday.

Bulgaria and the US have been discussing the matter for about two years, Svinarov recalled.
