The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) spokesman Piers Cazalet confirmed in a statement to FENA that Bosnia and Herzegovina’s NATO mission has submitted the Reform Program outlining the plan for implementing the reforms.
“We are looking forward to cooperating with BiH authorities based on this document as of start of 2020,” said Cazalet.
He reminded that NATO has supported reforms in BiH for years and helped build capacities that focused on the well-being of all citizens, and announced that this would continue in the future.
On Monday, BiH has officially submitted country’s Reform Program to NATO headquarters in Brussels.
Just an hour after the appointment of the new Council of Ministers, as agreed in the Presidency, the agreed Reform Program to NATO was submitted.
Although it was expected that the Reform Program would be delivered by Tuesday, it was done immediately.
It is interesting that the National Assembly of Republika Srpska considered the reform program already submitted, at the request of BiH Presidency Member Milorad Dodik.
A final assessment of the Reform Program, the importance of the document and its content will be given in the coming months by NATO members, when it will finally be determined whether BiH has taken the most important step under the Membership Action Plan (MAP).
However, most military-political experts are closer to the view that the Reform Program is essentially the ANP, although the document does not prejudice future membership, which will require a new decision by the BiH Presidency.
