Bulgaria plans to purchase two second-hand naval destroyers from the Netherlands in 2014.

Bulgarian Navy Commander-in-Chief Rear Admiral Plamen Manushev said the country’s defence ministry was planning to buy two more used vessels, possibly minesweepers, according to novinite.com.

The deal is expected to be implemented only after 2014 as the country is not considering new defence purchases before then.

The naval division of the Belgian Armed Forces will continue to provide assistance to the Bulgarian Navy for the operation of the second-hand ships, according to a navy official.
