SARAJEVO, Bosnia (November 24,2007) – NATO Secretary General informed the ambassadors of the NATO member states and ambassadors of the states who participate in the NATO programs on the decision that the Training Centre Butmir near the Bosnian capital Sarajevo is added to the NATO list of training centres.

The decision made the Butmir camp one of the 15 verified training centres which are a part of NATO’s Partnership for Peace Programme (PFP).

This will enable the development of the centre and participation in all kinds of activities of the civil and military representatives of 49 states.

In this way, Bosnia is considered a country capable of contributing the international peace and security.

The Bosnian Defence Ministry, initiated by the positive marks of NATO school based in Germany on professionalism and high standards achieved at the Butmir camp, started an initiative in July at NATO which resulted in signing of a memorandum on academic cooperation and a positive mark by the NATO Secretary General.

The Butmir Training Centre was formed in April 2005 through partnership of 12 countries, including the United States.

The camp’s mission is to ensure the internationally recognized training and education for the young officers based on the internationally accepted doctrine of peace support operations.

This is a shame and it further more proves that Bosnia is a puppet state. Why are they allowing NATO to make training centers in the capital? So they can use it as a base for bombing brothers in Afghanistan & Iraq? This is a shame! We do not want NATO terrorists in our country! They must get out and stop colonising our country.
