Bosnia’s Defence Ministry has already completed 74 percent of its tasks defined in the Reform Programme which the country sent to NATO last year, Defence Minister Sifet Podzic told N1 on Thursday.
The remaining tasks which have not been realised “require serious financial resources,” he said.
“We have learned from our Mission in Brussels that we need to evaluate the implemented measures from the Reform Program and it will have to be completed by the end of the month and then we will have to work on a new Reform Program,” Podzic said.
“As far as the Ministry of Defense is concerned, we have done everything regarding these 16 tasks together with other ministries, we have completed 18 tasks that are continuous and that will last throughout the entire process. We have 14 tasks that we have fully realized. We completed 32 tasks in the phase in which it was necessary,” he said.
“We did not complete 12 tasks,” he noted, but added that “74 percent of the tasks and obligations have been realized.”
