Bosnia and Herzegovina has no consensus on NATO membership

Russian Ambassador to Sarajevo Igor Kalabukhov said that there is currently no consensus in Bosnia and Herzegovina on NATO membership, Izvestia writes.

During his conversation with the newspaper’s correspondents, the diplomat noted that in some Balkan states, membership in the North Atlantic Alliance is viewed as “a definite guarantee of internal political stability.”

However, in his opinion, the stability of Europe can only be ensured by creating a system of common European security, and not by expanding NATO, which remains an instrument of the Cold War.

At the same time, Kalabukhov also stressed that the determination of foreign policy priorities is the sovereign right of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Note that Bosnia and Herzegovina, along with Serbia, remain the last countries in the Balkan region that did not join the alliance.

Earlier, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said that the leaders of the bloc intend to approve a new strategic concept at the Madrid summit in 2022.
