Meeting with the Commander of the Allied Joint Force Command in Naples

President of the Republic of Serbia Aleksandar Vučić met today with Admiral Robert Burke, Commander of the Allied Joint Force Command in Naples, to discuss forms of cooperation with NATO within the policy of military neutrality of Serbia.

President Vučić pointed out that regular dialogue between our country's representatives and officials of the Alliance's political and military structures has been established in addition to Serbia being a member of NATO's "Partnership for Peace" programme for fifteen years, which has contributed to strengthening mutual understanding and mutual trust.

Given that the NATO Joint Force Command in Naples is in charge of KFOR, President Vučić said that the members of that mission have a vital role in maintaining peace and stability and protecting Serbs and other non-Albanian communities in Kosovo and Metohija.

President Vučić also emphasised the importance of scientific and technological cooperation projects and cooperation in other areas, especially in civil protection and emergencies, within which in 2018 we hosted the most extensive exercise ever organised with about 2,000 participants from member countries and NATO partners.

The importance of Serbian Army members' participation in the UN and EU international missions was emphasised in the conversation, which contributes to peace and stability in different parts of the world.

Admiral Burke pointed out that NATO appreciates Serbia as its partner and respects its military neutrality. He indicated a significant number of held and planned joint activities that also contribute to Serbian Army members' readiness. Admiral Burke pointed out the importance of Serbia for peace and stability in the region.

President Vučić conveyed greetings to NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg and thanked him for his readiness to listen and understand Serbia's views.
