Media: Montenegro will receive an invitation to NATO

46
NATO Foreign Ministers 1 December will send Montenegro an invitation to join the alliance, reports Kommersant with reference to the German edition of Die Welt. This will be the first expansion of the organization since 2009.




According to the publication, "the leak about the upcoming decision of the NATO Council was clearly not accidental - on Friday the Russian State Duma adopted an extremely tough statement against Montenegro’s entry into NATO."

Russian lawmakers warned that "this step will not only seriously violate the traditionally friendly relations between the two countries, but also cast doubt on the joint work on the creation of a common European security architecture."

According to DW, "Russia sent letters to several NATO members, in which it also warned that the entry of Montenegro would lead to a deterioration in relations between the Russian Federation and the alliance."

To this, General Secretary Stoltenberg said: “She herself and the members of the alliance make the decision on the membership of Montenegro, and no other country has the right to interfere in this process. Any intervention by Russia can only increase the willingness of member states to send an invitation. ”

In Montenegro, Russia reacted calmly to the warning. "Russia has the legal right to pursue a policy against the expansion of the alliance," said Prime Minister Milo Djukanovic. “Montenegro as an independent state also has the right to choose its future - we have chosen this path and see it in the EU and NATO.”

The statement of the State Duma in the Montenegrin parliament was supported only by the “New Serbian Democracy”, which recently was engaged in organizing protests in Podgorica.

“The prospects for creating a strong anti-NATO bloc of parties in Montenegro are small. The balance of power in parliament showed a vote in September on a resolution in support of NATO: 50 deputies were in favor, 26 was against, three abstained, ”writes“ Kommersant ”. And public opinion polls show an increase in the number of citizens speaking for joining the alliance.

In order to strengthen the anti-NATO coalition in Montenegro, the support of neighboring Serbia is necessary. Without it, the opposition forces can hardly count on anything. However, Serbia, which declared neutrality, is in fact increasingly moving closer to NATO. This is evidenced by the current visit of Stoltenberg to Belgrade.

“Serbia has very good relations with NATO and intends to develop them in every way,” said Prime Minister Alexander Vucic at the meeting.

One of the leading Belgrade political scientists, Dusan Janic, is convinced: “This is a political confirmation of Belgrade’s will to deepen cooperation with NATO - so far without mentioning membership. The movement of Belgrade towards NATO will take a couple of years, and the membership of Montenegro will only facilitate this way. ”

    Montenegro will receive an invitation to NATO for the special merits of its government to the United States. Now Montenegro can sleep peacefully, prosperity is ensured.
    The opinion of the people can be ignored. This is such a trifle.

          The entire NATO operation against the FRY, which killed about 2000 civilians as a result of the bombing, is at least a crime against humanity. Sawed up and the division of Yugoslavia, and the involvement of its individual parts in NATO-this is the destruction of part of the Russian world.

          I think Russia has yet to return to Yugoslavia. Although such a concept no longer exists (like Yugoslavia). But as Russia has returned to the world in a relatively short time, from 2000-2015, I am sure that at least Serbia will be at the forefront of the European theater of action in the foreseeable future.

        The Serbs, or rather their Government, have practically agreed on a decision on a course towards NATO.

      And to be honest, I don’t quite understand
      On Friday, the Russian State Duma adopted an extremely harsh statement against Montenegro’s entry into NATO. ”Russian lawmakers warned that“ this step will not only seriously violate traditionally friendly relations between the two countriesbut will cast doubt on the joint work on creating a pan-European security architecture ”.


      That is, Montenegro imposes sanctions against the Russian Federation and this has not affected
      traditionally friendly relations between the two countries

      the government of Montenegro accused the Kremlin of protests, but how it began to join NATO (although Montenegro does not border the Russian Federation) such angry deputy voices began to be heard .. maybe this is due to the fact that there are restrictions on NATO countries .... entry / vacation / real estate and other benefits for some categories of citizens in the civil service? ))) and then such a piece of land, so delicious for relaxation, is leaving))
      I could be wrong ... but Montenegro’s entry into NATO and the loud bureaucratic voices .. well, they don’t fit together)))

    Enter, of course. It is not the population who decides, but the political elite, with accounts in Western banks. Only here it is impossible to swallow it silently. For example, publish in the media a map of Montenegro with a mark of new goals on its territory. They will not hurt to think once again. Especially after the news from Syria.

        Do not bully, but warn. Explain where the first retaliatory strike will fall and what will remain in this place later. If, as in a fairy tale, the heads of all countries understand this, then the American troops automatically pack the Chumadans and go to America. It’s only a pity they don’t understand ...

      They don’t risk a damn thing. No one will deploy serious military infrastructure with them, they will not have their own armed forces, so they may not wait for blows. This is a purely political action, while NATO looks stronger, they ran to it, and then who will win, if that: forgive us, the old prime minister and the elite are to blame, but they are already hanging on a birch. yes

    somewhat reminiscent of the WWII episode when Hitler put under arms a number of countries, the soldiers of which the USSR was before the bulb and those who after the change of wind surrendered in bundles. But I just think, is it worth it to step on the same rake every time - show mercy to them ?! Isn’t it easier to spend money on lead once than to re-compose the brains of more than one generation of Russian citizens like friends, not friends, innocent I — did he come?

      Too much was lost in the 90s. What can I say, Borya then actually betrayed them. And today we have no levers of influence on the Balkan countries. I hope not yet. Yes, and I would not be very worried about these countries joining NATO. It seems to me that the NATO bloc ( and our CSTO) is strong only on paper. If, God forbid, a concrete fight ensues, then this block is unlikely to be effective. Everyone will act based on personal interests.

    Remember the main rule. Revenge is a dish to be eaten cold. And the "head chef" is doing well with patience. We will endure and take what is ours. I believe in it now, because Putin has pride. In Syria, too, they endured to the last. They tried to come to an agreement, played chess, but when they realized that it would not work out, the same chessboard would hit you in the head.
    The time will come and Ukraine. They will pay for everything. And these forecast dates are two:
    1) When ours will throw an energy bridge, and this is 2016;
    2) When ours will finish building the bridge, and this is 2019.
    Until that time, we will have "partners" in Ukraine and we will endure. And the "partners" have no choice, or they increase the intensity of their "struggle" (with the economy it does not work), or they will be swept away by the right-wing people. Because the nationalist state has no other way, only fascization. Therefore, we will endure and throw up handouts, as long as we have the Crimea hostage.

    They will all be there. Only weak-willed people seek protection from the strong one for no reason, and then they start to lift their nose, as the Balts, for example, refused to solve the world problem (ig), since they are already Russians, and they would have decided, because after joining NATO they gain immortality :). So they climb to the front line, but do not let the brave Baltic fishermen-fighters).
