Slovak President Andrej Kiska signed a ratification document to the NATO Protocol on the accession of Montenegro on June 22, the TASR newswire reported.

The ratification of Montenegro’s NATO accession by Slovakia was launched in May, with the government approving the relevant protocol and subsequently with parliament okaying it in mid-June.

NATO foreign affairs ministers approved an invitation for Montenegro in December 2015. The Slovak Foreign and European Affairs Ministry believes that Montenegro’s NATO membership will significantly boost security, stability and freedom in the Western Balkans.

In order to be accepted into NATO, Montenegro’s bid has to be ratified by all 28 NATO-member countries.
