Montenegro begins Negotiations to Enter NATO
On February 15-16th, Brussels will meet the representative of Montenegro and NATO to discuss the conditions for admittance into the North Atlantic Alliance. The strategic decision on Montenegro’s accession to NATO was approved at the Warsaw NATO Summit in December 2015. This meeting will consider the discussion of the membership’s details, including political, military and law issues. After the negotiations, the Alliance member-states will sign the protocol on the accession of Montenegro. It will allow the country to participate in all NATO events as the invited state. After the protocol’s ratification, Montenegro will become the North Atlantic Alliance full member. The critical fact is that the negotiations began at the same date as the Montenegrin Prime Minister Milo Đukanović's birthday.
