Turkey, Bulgaria, Georgia, Romania, Russia, and Ukraine have signed a naval cooperation agreement covering the Black Sea. (Bulgaria and Romania had wanted the US to join the group as an observer, but the US bluntly refused.) The agreement has two main provisions. One is a general cooperation agreement covering port visits, environmental protection, and exchanges of information on operations (and Cold War leftover problems). The second is an agreement to annually create a joint naval task force that would conduct exercises for search and rescue, peace support, and other missions.--Stephen V Cole

wreath Help Save the Content Elves Christmas!
 

Christmas is around the corner. StrategyPage needs your help to make it a merry one for our content elves. Because of falling ad revenues and the owners of the site wanting you to have a good experience, the content elves may recieve no gifts from Santa Dunnigan.

What can you do to help the content elves have a merry Christmas? There are three possibilities:

  1. Make sure you spread the word about us. Two ways to do that are to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.
  2. Subscribe to our daily newsletter. We’ll send the news to your email box, and you don’t have to come to the site unless you want to read columns or see photos.
  3. You can contribute to the health of StrategyPage. A contribution is not a donation that you can deduct at tax time, but a form of crowdfunding. We store none of your information when you contribute..

Drake appreciates any help you can give him.
