Palmer: Annual National Program does not mean Membership in NATO

Minister of Foreign Affairs of Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) Igor Crnadak spoke on Tuesday with the United States Secretary of State and Special Representative for the Western Balkans Matthew Palmer during the conference in Bled, Slovenia.

Crnadak participated in the 14th Bled Strategic Forum on the topic of “Sources of (In)stability” during which he wrote on his Facebook that the US wants the government to be formed at all levels as soon as possible, to continue with the strengthening of the institutions and the rule of law.

“The US wants to make it clear that the Annual National Program (ANP), which has become a stumbling block when it comes to establishing power, does not mean membership in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and that now is not the time when this decision is to be made,” Crnadak wrote, adding that the United States and Palmer, as the country’s Special Representative, will be very much present and interested in supporting the reforms in BiH.
