The event brought together politicians, experts, diplomats and representatives of the Bulgarian Armed Forces, and was live-streamed on the Facebook page of the Diplomatic Institute.
The aim was to reflect upon the seven decades of transatlantic cooperation and NATO’s role in safeguarding the freedom of its citizens, along with Bulgaria’s contributions and experiences within the Alliance in the past 15 years. The conference also served as an opportunity to consider the future of Bulgaria as a NATO member state and how the Alliance adapts to our rapidly changing world, with international security and cooperation in mind.
