Foreign Minister Comanescu: Montenegro’s NATO accession to bring added value to stabilizing Western Balkans

Minister of Foreign Affairs Lazar Comanescu stated on Wednesday that Montenegro’s receiving the invitation to join NATO represents the acknowledgement of the country’s progress in adopting and implementing the internal reforms agenda, and from Romania’s perspective this will bring added value to Euro-Atlantic security as well as contribute towards stabilizing the Western Balkans region.

According to a press release sent to Agerpres by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MAE), Comanescu underlined that the Alliance’s decision to address Montenegro the accession invitation reiterates the success of NATO’s enlargement process.

MAE reminds that the heads of diplomacy of NATO member states adopted on Wednesday, in Brussels, a declaration on the “open door” policy by means of which the members of the Alliance are addressing Montenegro the accession invitation. Moreover, MAE stresses that Bosnia and Herzegovina, Georgia and Macedonia are making progress in the process of preparing their accession and encourages them further to continue their efforts in this direction.

“Foreign Minister Lazar Comanescu congratulated his Montenegrin counterpart, Igor Luksic, and Defence Minister Milica Pejanovic Durisic for the success and evoked the constant support offered by Romania for joining NATO,” the source mentioned.
