Montenegro Signs NATO's PfP Status of Forces Agreement

At a ceremony today at the Department of State, Montenegrin Ambassador to the United States Miodrag Vlahovic signed NATO’s Partnership for Peace (PfP) Status of Forces Agreement (SOFA) for which the United States is the depositary government. Montenegro was invited to join Partnership for Peace at the NATO Summit in Riga in November 2006. The SOFA provides certain protections for Montenegrin forces in other NATO Partner countries.

The signing of this agreement is another welcome indication of Montenegro’s growing integration into the Euro-Atlantic community.
