BRUSSELS – NATO Secretary General, Jens Stoltenberg, welcomed the Chairman of the Tri-Presidency of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Dragan Čović, to NATO Headquarters today.

Stoltenberg thanked Bosnia and Herzegovina for its commitment to international security, including its contributions to NATO’s Resolute Support Mission in Afghanistan.

Stoltenberg and Čović discussed Bosnia and Herzegovina’s Euro-Atlantic aspirations and its domestic reforms, including registering defence properties to the state.

Stoltenberg encouraged efforts to register more properties and he welcomed the country’s Defence Review agreed last year.

“The focus should be on implementation, to make this review a reality. I count on Bosnia and Herzegovina to redouble its efforts in this area,” Stoltenberg said.

The Secretary General said he looked forward to working with Čović to further strengthen co-operation between the Alliance and Bosnia and Herzegovina.
