BELGRADE – Serbian PM Ana Brnabić on Thursday met with NATO Deputy Secretary-General Rose Gottemoeller at Belgrade Security Forum at which they agreed Serbia and NATO were firmly connected by the joint interest of preserving peace and stability in the Western Balkans.

Expressing satisfaction with the pace of development of the Serbia-NATO political dialogue, Brnabić said Serbia remained militarily neutral but was ready to develop cooperation with the alliance as part of the Partnership for Peace programme.

In the programme, Serbia has established significant cooperation with NATO member states and it is implementing the best experiences and standards in the process of modernising its armed forces and defence capabilities, she said.

Brnabić reaffirmed Serbia’s permanent commitment to cooperate with all international factors while taking care of its state and national interests.
