The Minister of defence of Montenegro, Predrag Boskovic, said that the country’s airspace is protected by NATO planes. About it reports RTCG.
According to the politician, a relevant maintenance agreement is being signed. Immediate cover will be carried out of the air force of Italy and Greece.
Boskovic said that NATO membership costs 475 thousand euros per year, which is the country’s contribution to the General budget of the Alliance. “It is definitely much cheaper than to develop a comprehensive system of defence,”— said the head of the military Department.
29 Jun Boskovic said that the membership of Montenegro in NATO meets the interests of Russia, if it is beneficial to the stability in the region.
Montenegro officially became the 29th member of NATO on 5 June. During the ceremony, which was held in Washington, US Deputy Secretary of state Thomas Shannon was given the Protocol of accession to the North Atlantic Alliance.
