Up to 500 U.S. soldiers and 18 U.S. military planes are to arrive in Bulgaria to patrol the sky over the Romanian capital Bucharest during the NATO summit taking place in the Romanian capital, local press reported Thursday.

The Bulgarian government voted Thursday during its weekly meeting to allow the additional U.S. forces to remain in the country until April 22.

The U.S. troops and equipment are going to take part in the work of securing the Bucharest NATO meeting between March 31 and April 6.

They will be able to fly over, land and refuel on Bulgarian territory, and to perform any other activity related to the logistic missions of the summit.

During the rest of their stay in Bulgaria, the U.S. troops are going to participate in joint drills for working out planned actions and the compatibility level among the Alliance's armed forces.
