24 percent of the Montenegrin Military members were engaged in international missions which resulted, as assessed, in a faster and more efficient process for interoperability and development of capabilities.
This was stated in the justification of the solution on directing members of the Montenegrin Military to the KFOR mission in Kosovo, which should be verified by the Montenegrin Parliament.
Participation in international missions is professionally challenging for the members of the Montenegrin Military forces and represents an opportunity to prepare themselves for a multi-national environment engagement and to exchange experiences with colleagues from other countries’ armed forces in realistic conditions.
As stated, after Montenegro joined the North-Atlantic alliance, conditions have been met for increasing the presence of Montenegro at the international plan which is in accordance with expectations by the remaining NATO alliance members.
“The Ministry of Defense and the Chief headquarters of the Montenegrin Military have carried out the analysis and assessment for possibilities to engage Military members in the KFOR mission and concluded that, in accordance with present capacities and the size of the undertaken international liabilities, it can participate in the KFOR mission by engaging two officers in its headquarters," it was explained further.
The KFOR mission is being conducted, as evaluated, in a favorable safety environment where the costs by the Ministry of Defense would be related to daily salaries for the engaged individuals.
“Participation in the missions generate credibility for Montenegro in the international community since its active participation and contribution demonstrates liability and awareness of the necessity to preserve safety in the world," it was said in the justification of the solution.
