The Atlantic Club of Bulgaria organized a public exhibition on the topic „NATO Ballistic Missile Defense”. The exhibition was part of the national plan to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the accession of Bulgaria to NATO and was related to the protection of Europe.
In 2010, after the NATO Lisbon Summit, the Alliance decided to initiate the development of a missile defense to fulfill its primary purpose – the defense of Europe.
During the Summit in Chicago in 2012, the Heads of State and Prime Ministers of NATO Member States announced the potential for missile defense application.
The exhibition opened in Sofia on 24 June 2014, and continued until 9 July 2014.
