Bulgarian Chief of Defence Admiral Emil Eftimov is taking part in the annual conference of the NATO Military Committee between September 15 and 17 in Oslo, Norway, Bulgaria’s Defence Ministry said on Friday.
During the forum, the Alliance’s Chiefs of Defence will discuss matters of strategic importance to NATO’s allies which arose during the 2023 Vilnius summit in July. Among the topics of discussion will also be the aid provided to Ukraine and its impact on the implementation of NATO’s Concept for Deterrence and Defence of the Euro-Atlantic Area. The discussions will also focus on the feasibility of the deterrence and defence plans adopted in Vilnius, and how to make them fully executable.
The Military Committee meets in Chiefs of Defence Session twice a year at NATO Headquarters in Brussels, and once a year a Conference is held by an Allied member state. The Military Committee convenes to discuss NATO operations, missions and activities and to provide the North Atlantic Council with unfettered, consensus-based military advice on how the Alliance can best address global security challenges. On a day-to-day basis, its work is carried out by the permanent Military Representatives at the NATO Headquarters in Brussels.
