Montenegro Moves Closer to NATO Membership
NATO foreign ministers signed the accession protocol for Montenegro on Thursday.
The decision brings the Balkan country a step closer to membership of the Alliance.
Montenegro would participate in all NATO meetings as an observer as of Thursday, Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said at a joint press conference with Montenegrin Prime Minister Milo Djukanovic in Brussels.
The country will be invited to become the 29th member of NATO once all Allies have ratified the accession protocol.
NATO foreign ministers invited Montenegro to start accession talks in December 2015.
Montenegro actively supported the NATO-led operation in Afghanistan from 2010 to end-2014 and is now supporting the follow-on mission to train, advise and assist the Afghan security forces.
