NATO-Russia Council calls for strengthened defence reform in Bosnia
In a statement issued after the ambassadorial meeting of the NATO-Russia Council (NRC) on 23 July, which will be transmitted to the Bosnian tri-presidency by the NRC Chairman, NATO Secretary General Lord Robertson, NRC members also pointed to the need for defence allocations to be affordable and appropriate to the country's circumstances, which will require significant downsizing of the armed forces.
During the meeting, NRC ambassadors also exchanged views on the current
situations in Afghanistan and Kosovo, as well as discussing progress
in developing practical cooperation in the struggle against terrorism
and in the area of logistics.
