The NATO Parliamentary Assembly, in addition to advising countries to declare Russia a terrorist state in the adopted resolution, also referred to the situation in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) through the document.
Among other things, the Parliamentary Assembly through the adopted resolution called on the member states to provide additional support to BiH.
”We call on the states to strengthen political and practical, including military, support for NATO candidates and partners who are exposed to Russian pressure and attempts at intimidation, especially BiH, Georgia, and Moldova,‘‘ they stated.
In this regard, the NATO Parliamentary Assembly advised the states to promptly implement the ”Adjusted Support Measures”adopted in June 2022 at the summit in Madrid, which prescribe the improvement of the defense capabilities of Georgia, Moldova, and BiH.
In the context of NATO expansion, the Parliamentary Assembly welcomed the activities related to the entry of Sweden and Finland into the Alliance but also reflected on BiH’s path towards this organization.
”We welcome the invitation to Finland and Sweden to join the Alliance, which has been ratified by almost all the member state parliaments. We also reiterate our unwavering support for NATO’s open door policy and the Euro-Atlantic integration of Ukraine, Georgia, and BiH,” they added.
Moreover, it was also emphasized that support must be given to the building and resilience of countries.
”We call on the states to increase their support to vulnerable partners, BiH, Georgia, and Moldova, and to help them build their integrity and resilience, develop their capabilities and maintain their political independence, and to continue supporting the Euro-Atlantic integration of Georgia and BiH,” it is stated in the resolution from the NATO Parliamentary Assembly.
Namely, the NATO Parliamentary Assembly was founded in 1955 and serves as an advisory body and inter-parliamentary organization for NATO member states and in some way represents a link between the military-political organization and member parliaments.
Like other resolutions, this one is not binding for members but serves as a recommendation for further action, Klix.ba reports.
