Chairman Zvizdic, before the opening of the conference, said that the Munich Security Conference is an opportunity to get acquainted with the development of events, trends and global relations in the field of security, mutual cooperation and economic prosperity. Bearing in mind the introductory presentations and documents of the Conference as well as the challenges faced by the modern world in order to preserve stability and combat terrorism and organized crime, it is quite clear that BiH must be part of the family of European and NATO countries.

“All other ideas are of a short-term nature, without valid arguments, based on narrow political and personal goals and certainly cannot withstand the test of global and European processes whose key principle is in the multilateral defense of European democratic values, “said Zvizdic.

Chairman Zvizdic also attended the panel on “The Future of Defense Cooperation – Joint Force?”, Attended by NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg and Foreign Ministers of France, Poland, Canada and Japan and a member of the Senate Foreign Affairs Committee USA.
