“By 2024, Montenegro will allocate two percent of GDP for defense, Milo Djukanovic announced at the NATO summit in Brussels and announced new missions in Iraq and Latvia.

‘A precisely defined plan is that even by 2024 Montenegro will allocate two percent of GDP for defense, perhaps within that and 20 percent earlier for the modernization of the army,’ Djukanovic said after the first day of the NATO summit.

He states that at the summit, important decisions were made on strengthening the policy of defense and deterrence, and the fight against terrorism. The president announced the establishment of a training mission in Iraq.

‘Montenegro will also take part in the Alliance’s forces in Latvia, along with Slovenia, under the command of Canada,’ Djukanovic said.” (translated from RTCG)
