Expansion
The defense ministers of Bulgaria and Romania, Nikolay Svinarov and Ioan Mircea Pascu, met in the Danube port city of Ruse, northern Bulgaria, on 21 May to discuss the expansion of bilateral military cooperation, BTA reported.

Cooperation
Svinarov and Pascu also discussed bilateral cooperation in air-traffic control, military management, troop training and interoperability, as well as the countries' contributions to the stabilization and reconstruction of Iraq.

Memorandum
Pascu handed Svinarov a memorandum proposing to link the two countries' NATO-standard Air Sovereignty Operation Center (ASOC) systems, and to enhance naval interoperability and military training.

Pan-European security
The two ministers also discussed Bulgaria's and Romania's future role in the pan-European security system, a question that will also be on the agenda of the forthcoming NATO ministerial meeting in Brussels on 12-13 June.
