Admiral James Foggo, Commander of the Joint Command of Allied Forces in Naples, met with BiH Presidency members Zeljko Komsic and Sefik Dzaferovic, telling them that it is time for BiH to hand over the Annual State Program (ANP).
BiH Presidency Members Komsic and Dzaferovic introduced Admiral Fogg with aspirations and fulfilling the conditions of BiH’s Euro-Atlantic integration, which equally imply the EU and NATO, pointing out that the rejection of this road does not lead to the stability and security of BiH.
They thanked for the decisive role NATO has had in stopping the recent war, establishing peace and reforming the defense-security sector in BiH.
They pointed out that the submission of the Annual State Program (ANP) to compliance with the laws passed in the field of defense and that this is the question of the rule of law.
Admiral Foggo thinks that it is time for BiH to hand over the ANP and it is his opinion that his postponement would risk creating “bad images” for the European Bank for Regional Development (EBRD) bankers who will arrive in Sarajevo this week as part of the Third EBRD Summit. He stressed that the authorities of BiH are themselves preparing their annual state program and have full control over its content.
