Description: BBC News, 28 April 2006
The United States and Bulgaria have signed an agreement that will allow US troops to use three military bases in Bulgaria.
The deal allows US forces to be stationed at Bezmer air base and the Novo Selo army training range near the border with Turkey, and at Graf Ignatievo airfield in central Bulgaria.
Crucially, the deal allows Washington to deploy troops from their Bulgarian bases for missions in third countries in consultation with - but if need be, without the specific permission of - the Sofia government.
