NATO naval base in Porto Romano, Stoltenberg: We are considering the proposal
The Secretary General of NATO, Jens Stoltenberg, in a press conference, stated that the Alliance's experts are examining the Albanian government's proposal for the construction of the military base in Porto Romano. Stoltenberg said that after evaluating the offer they will give advice depending on the military situation.
"We welcome the allies' offers for the deployment of NATO facilities. Our experts have to look at all such offers and then give advice depending on the military conditions. The new Strategic Concept of NATO, which was approved at the Madrid Summit, once again confirmed the strategic importance of the Western Balkans for our alliance. NATO will continue to promote stability, security and cooperation in the region, including the daily efforts of KFOR, our headquarters in Sarajevo and the office in Belgrade. Security and stability in the Western Balkans is important for NATO and for peace and stability in Europe," Stoltenberg said.
