Today (15 November 2021), NATO Deputy Secretary General Mircea Geoană spoke virtually at the 2021 edition of the NATO Parliamentary Assembly’s Rose-Roth Seminar in Belgrade.
“We are here today to mark a very special milestone, 15 years of Serbia’s participation in NATO’s Partnership for Peace Programme,” the NATO Deputy Secretary General said. “Serbia’s long-standing partnership with NATO is good for the people of Serbia. It is good for the stability of the region; and it is also good for wider transatlantic security; so this partnership matters to us all,” he pointed out.
“NATO has been committed to peace and stability in the Western Balkans for decades; this requires our continued collective effort. We all have a role to play in this. As our NATO leaders restated at the June Summit of 2021, they reconfirmed their commitment of our Alliance to this region, and this commitment is stronger than ever today,” he also said.
