NATO decided on the projects for expansion to the East - a perfect candidate for entry into the military structure of the Alliance dubbed Montenegro. In the Republic the number of supporters of joining the unit for the first time exceeded the number of opponents.
The majority of Montenegrins are ready to support Preface powers in NATO, said sample data of sociological surveys conducted by reputable Balkan Agency Strategic Marketing and Damar. According to reliable information of one of them, for joining the Alliance would have voted 47% of people power, against 43 per cent. According to others, in the same step are 44% of the city's powers, against 40%. Answering the question of whether the nation a member of NATO, responded positively 64% and 66% respectively. The number of adherents of accession of Montenegro to NATO for the first time exceeded the number of opponents.
With all this, Western politicians are sending to the government of the Republic of unambiguous signals - specifically their power was selected to become a fresh member of NATO. "There are important prerequisites to Montenegro became a member of the Alliance", - said the Prime Minister of England David Cameron. "The invitation of Montenegro will certainly do," assured the aspirant of Slovakia to NATO Tomas Valasek. The Secretary General of the Alliance Jens Stoltenberg has approved that the final decision will be made in December.
Management of Montenegro declared NATO membership as a strategic goal in 2010. "Montenegro is the only Mentovskie link in the NATO chain of States, all of our neighbors in the Adriatic - NATO members, and other ways to ensure security we have. Besides all this, NATO membership is the surest guarantee for investors, from which we largely depend" - quoted by "Kommersant" adept of government power.
The commander of NATO forces in Europe General Philip Breedlove said that the military draft Montenegro is fully prepared to join the Union, a decision regarding admission will be only political. Some members of the military unit is quite reluctant to the prospect of introducing a new member - they fear that the structure is very bulky, and with caution expect Russia's reaction to NATO enlargement.
In Montenegro are convinced that the accession to power in a military Alliance relationship with the Russian Federation will not suffer. "First of all, we never hid from the Russian Federation of our projects. Also, Moscow is strictly against joining NATO, first of all its neighboring States. In-3, Russia sees the danger in the approach to their own borders military infrastructure of the Alliance, but Montenegro is not planning to place on their own terrain base. In the end, NATO has several States that have excellent relations with the Russian Federation, and Moscow should be interested in increasing their numbers," believe in Podgorica.
"Connecting Montenegro in Euro-Atlantic integration in any case will not be an obstacle for the development of relationships with partners and friends, such as Russia", - assured the Prime Minister of Montenegro Milo Djukanovic Russian colleague Dmitry Medvedev in not so long ago occurred the letter on the occasion of Russia Day.
It seems however, the main obstacle for the inclusion of powers in NATO was called incomplete reforms (they held) and the unsatisfactory level of public assistance (it has improved).
