Decision on Assigning the MAP Status to Bosnia and Herzegovina has been Adopted in Tallinn
At the meeting held on April 22nd, 2010, in Tallinn, at the late evening hours, the decision on assigning the MAP status to Bosnia and Herzegovina was adopted.
A significant support to Bosnia and Herzegovina, apart from other countries, was especially given by Slovenia, Croatia, Turkey, Albania, Norway, Slovakia and Bulgaria. This is an important step for B&H in the sense of further acknowledgment of its sovereignty and territorial integrity. This also represents an important step with the meaning of stability and security within B&H itself but also within the Region as a whole.
Minister of Foreign Affairs of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Mr. Sven Alkalaj, has stressed out that assigning the MAP status is of great importance for both B&H and the NATO Alliance. He emphasized that achieving this act represents one of the greatest foreign policy priorities of Bosnia and Herzegovina in this year, which is, in the near future, opening the way for us to obtain the full membership with the NATO.
