The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) has an important role in Bosnia and Herzegovina today in the context of numerous security challenges, Zoran Tegeltija, new Chairman of the Council of Ministers said.
He stressed that serious security challenges that have not avoided Bosnia and Herzegovina, such as the migrant crisis, radicalism and terrorism, it is necessary to develop cooperation with everyone.
He added that cooperation should be carried out in accordance with constitutional and legal solutions, but also in accordance with the will and commitment of its constituent peoples.
“BiH should develop its relations with NATO in accordance with its own interests and needs, starting from the “BiH Reform Program”, as a basic document which defines the framework for further development of relations between the two sides,” Tegeltija emphasized.
He assessed that BiH must develop cooperation with everyone, but in accordance with the will and commitment of its constituent peoples, and only those activities, whether internal or external, that are based on the agreement and consent of everyone in BiH have a chance for success, for benefit of all its citizens.
“Only in this way will BiH establish itself as a community of equal peoples. We cannot afford that issues on which there is no agreement in BiH dominate our lives,” Tegeltija pointed out, Federal News Agency reported.
