The document which Bosnia will send to NATO does not mean the country will become a member of the alliance, Russia’s Ambassador in the country, Petr Ivantsov, said on Wednesday.
“That document is not connected to the integration of Bosnia in the NATO alliance,” the Russian Ambassador said, adding that it is not connected to the NATO Membership Action Plan (MAP) either.
A day before, the three members of Bosnia’s Presidency agreed on finally appointing the Council of Ministers in the country and on sending a ‘Programme of Reforms’ to NATO.
The agreement was the result of a compromise.
Bosnia was supposed to send the Annual National Programme (ANP) to NATO, which would activate the country’s Membership Action Path and would represent the next step in the country’s efforts to join the alliance.
The ruling Bosnian Serb party, however, opposes any such being made.
