NATO Commander Praises Bulgarian Military in Iraq
The commander of the "Center-South" multinational division in the Arab country has sent a letter of thanks to Bulgaria's Chief of Army Staff, General Nikola Kolev. The Bulgarian military in the "Center-South" division perform their duties brilliantly, the letter reads.
Their extraordinary work, loyalty to professional duties and contribution towards peacekeeping and assuring stability to Iraq are a model to be imitated by others, it continues. Skrshypchak has also expressed hope that the military cooperation will continue and grow in time.
In the beginning of June Bulgaria has welcomed back its troops of the fourth infantry contingent in Iraq. The last 151-member batch of troops to wrap up the Bulgaria rotation returned from Iraq May 29.
Bulgaria has drawn plans to withdraw its last troops from Iraq by the end of 2005. A staunch ally of the US-led coalition there, Bulgaria has decreased the number of its troops down to 400 serving under Polish commandment within the multinational forces deployed in the south-center part of Iraq.
