Bulgarian PM wants whole EU to become NATO member
If this happens, the EU could allocate two percent of its budget for defense, and together with NATO, set priorities for developing the armed forces of countries depending on the threats to each country, Borissov said.
This is pragmatic because military equipment is "godlessly expensive," military exercises were also very expensive, and maintenance was "even more expensive," Borissov said.
In this way, EU countries would feel safe, and no single country would have to spend a lot of money on everything, he added. ■
