BELGRADE – Members of three committees of the Serbian parliament and of Serbia’s permanent delegation to the NATO Parliamentary Assembly (PA) met with a delegation of the NATO PA Committee on the Civil Dimension of Security in Belgrade Wednesday.

Lord Thomas Michael Jopling, vice president of the NATO PA and chairman of the Subcommittee on Democratic Governance of the Committee on Civil Dimension of Security of the NATO PA, commended Serbia’s permanent delegation to NATO PA for playing an active role in the work of the organization.

Serbia is a key player when it comes to regional stability. We respect the position taken by the Serbian people and its leadership in terms of membership of NATO as well as their willingness to be engaged in a constructive partnership, the Serbian parliament cited Jopling as saying in a release.

The meeting resulted in an agreement between Serbia and NATO to continue working together within the PfP program with the aim of preserving peace, prosperity and stability in the Balkans, and Jopling welcomed the signing of an agreement on cooperation in the field of logistics.
