Bulgarian Parliament welcomes Nato’s invitation to Montenegro to join alliance

Bulgaria’s National Assembly voted by a large majority on December 17 to express support for the invitation two weeks earlier by Nato to Montenegro to join the alliance.

In the declaration, for which there were 150 votes in favour, three against and two abstentions, Bulgaria’s Parliament undertakes to ratify as soon as possible Montenegro’s accession to Nato, as soon as membership negotiations are concluded.

The draft declaration was signed by the leaders of almost all the eight parliamentary groups in the National Assembly.
