NATO Expansion: Montenegro

BELGIUM-US-NATO-AFFAIRS-FOREIGN

NATO has decided in the last few days to offer Montenegro a chance to join the alliance. Russia, unsurprisingly, is not happy with expansion further into the Balkans, and has promised retaliation. Interestingly, this also comes after Turkey’s shooting down of the Russian plane in Syria and Turkey’s call for NATO to back them up.

 

What does Montenegro bring to NATO? Not much, relatively speaking, in terms of hard military assets and money, so it’ll be interesting to see how this plays out.
