NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen has urged Serbia to look to the future, said reports. That future, he said, lies in integration into the European Union and NATO despite its skepticism regarding the alliance.
Rasmussen, who is on a one-day visit to Sofia, said that Bulgaria could play a key role in the process of accession of Western Balkan states to NATO.
Referring to NATO’s new Strategic Concept, Rasmussen said that its goal is to maintain security guarantees, including the creation of the missile defense system which will not be expensive.
In his meeting with Rasmussen, Bulgarian Foreign Minister Nickolay Mladenov spoke about military cooperation between Bulgaria and Serbia, said reports.
