BELGRADE – Serbia has achieved progress in nearly all areas of the Individual Partnership Action Plan (IPAP) with NATO, Brigadier General Slobodan Joksimovic from the Strategic Planning Department of the Serbian Ministry of Defence said Monday.

The assessment has been made following the recent conclusion of the first IPAP cycle, with progress achieved in all areas except public diplomacy, where there are certain objections, Joksimovic said at the international conference Belgrade NATO Week, organised by the Centre for Euro-Atlantic Studies.

“We expect further implementation of IPAP to contribute to further development of the cooperation with NATO and development of the defence system, to achieving interoperability of armed forces and to better bilateral cooperation with NATO member states,” Joksimovic said.
