The country has so far fulfilled some 83% of its commitments included in the Individual Partnership Action Plan (IPAP) for accession to NATO, PM Milo Djukanovic announced following the regular session of the governments Partnership for Peace Council. Authorities expect that the progress review will be positive. As recalled, the military alliance approved the Montenegrin IPAP in last February. The main goal of the two-year programme was the implementation of a defence system reform. The country was recently invited to join NATOs Membership Action Plan (MAP), which represents the last step towards obtaining fully-fledged membership in the military alliance. The country still has to fulfil several conditions in five key areas, to be included in its Annual National Programme (ANP), while the military block will decide on the eventual accession of the country based on the annual progress reports. Montenegro joined at end-2006 the Partnership for Peace (PfP) programme, which is the first formal step on the path to membership in the alliance. In April/2008, country entered into a new stage of its accession to the North-Atlantic alliance after NATO decided to accept it into the programme of Intensified Dialogue with the organisation.
