Cooperation between NATO and Serbia is much stronger and better developed than it might seem in the eyes of the citizens of Serbia, the head of the alliance’s military liaison office, Tommaso Vitale, has said.
“One of the reasons is a large amount of misinformation, which we fight with facts and joint values, a transparent approach and specific measures,” Vitale told daily Blic in an interview published on Saturday.
NATO and Serbia can continue to cooperate and are continuing to do so despite Serbia deciding not to join the organisation, he added.
“The partnership between us is well-developed and is unfolding in several domains – political, military and scientific. We have achieved significant results so far,” the Italian general said, adding that a political dialogue complemented practical cooperation at all levels, which was clear when Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic visited Brussels in May.
Vitale also recalled that this year would be the 15th anniversary of cooperation between NATO and Serbia within the Partnership for Peace.
