Bulgaria's prime minister said Thursday he would not join a proposed NATO fleet meant to counter Russian forces in the Black Sea as he did not want a war there, a day after Moscow warned against any build-up.Turkey and Romania, the two other NATO members along the Black Sea coast, have called for the NATO fleet and more alliance troops in an area important for both East and West given its energy reserves and closeness to the Middle East.The issue of the fleet is expected to be raised again at NATO's Warsaw Summit in July as the alliance is considering what more it can do to deter what it sees as growing Russian aggression.NATO members Turkey, Romania and Bulgaria are all Black Sea Basin countries.
