“‘Montenegro’s accession has helped promote stability in the Western Balkans because security promotes prosperity; and it has contributed to Euro-Atlantic security,’ Mr. Stoltenberg said. ‘Thank you for committing to increase the number of troops in our training mission in Afghanistan. I also welcome that you are increasing defence spending, with a clear plan to invest 2% of GDP in defence by 2024; so Montenegro is proving to be a very solid and very reliable member of the Alliance,’ the NATO Secretary General added.” (NATO HQ)
