NATO Deputy Secretary General highlights 15 years of NATO-Serbia partnership
On 15 November 2021, NATO’s Deputy Secretary General Mircea Geoană spoke virtually at the 2021 edition of the NATO Parliamentary Assembly’s Rose-Roth Seminar in Belgrade.
“We are here today to mark a very special milestone, 15 years of Serbia’s participation in NATO’s Partnership for Peace Programme,” the NATO Deputy Secretary General said. “Serbia’s long-standing partnership with NATO is good for the people of Serbia; it is good for the stability of the region; and it is also good for the wider transatlantic security; so this partnership matters to us all,” he pointed out.
“NATO has been committed to peace and stability in the Western Balkans for decades; this requires our continued collective effort. We all have a role to play in this. As our NATO leaders restated at the June Summit of 2021, they reconfirmed the commitment of our Alliance to this region; and this commitment is stronger than ever today,” he also said.
