Skopje. Macedonian Defense Minister Lazar Elenovski will pay visits to Serbia, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Montenegro within his three-day tour of the region, the Macedonian agency Makfax reported. The visits are aimed at offering Macedonia's support to Euro-Atlantic integration processes of the three countries and assistance in defense reforms, an official announcement says.
Elenovski's first stop is Belgrade, where he is due to meet today with his Serbian counterpart Zoran Stankovic.
On Thursday and Wednesday, Elenovski will meet with BiH's Defense Minister Nikola Radovanovic and Montenegro's Defense Minister Boro Vuchinic.
NATO's Partnership for Peace Programme admitted Serbia, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Montenegro couple of days ago, while Macedonia joined the Programme in 1995.
ARM Chief of Staff, General Miroslav Stojanovski, will accompany Minister Elenovski in his visits.
