“NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg assessed Montenegro as a very solid and reliable ally in its first year of membership and that it has great benefits from sitting at the same table from 28 other countries in the world.

‘It benefits from deep co-operation with allies that represent half of the world’s economic and military force. Collective defense represents the largest possible form of security guarantee. Let’s take for example the fact that Greek and Italian combat aircraft are now guarding the airspace of Montenegro. In the event of a crisis, Montenegro knows that 28 friends will come to the aid,’ Stoltenberg said in an interview with” News “on the occasion of the anniversary of NATO membership.” (translated from Vijesti)
