Montenegro responsibly responded to the obligations of NATO membership and harmonization of the national defense legislation with NATO standards, and countries of the region should follow the Montenegrin example, General André Lanata, Supreme Allied Commander Transformation, SACT (one of NATO’s two strategic commanders), told today at the meeting with Montenegro’s Minister of Defense, Predrag Bošković.
It was noted that the support of the Norfolk-based Allied Command Transformation, ACT, was extremely significant for the process of Montenegro’s integration into NATO, especially through the activities of the Working Group for Accession and Integration.
Mr Bošković stressed its importance for the overall security of the Euro-Atlantic community, adding that “the significance of this Command is even greater having in mind the security challenges that the Euro-Atlantic community has been dealing with,” the Ministry of Defense said in a statement.
According to Minister Bošković, Montenegro is responsibly monitoring and implementing NATO’s policies, at the same time promoting the idea of Euro-Atlantic future of the entire Western Balkans.
