Telecommunications are Serbia’s decision, NATO’s Stoltenberg says Izvor: N1

Serbia does not intend to join NATO and it takes its own decisions on telecommunications and infrastructure, Alliance Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg told the Voice of America on Friday.

Asked about China’s role in the Western Balkans, Stoltenberg said that it’s up to Serbia to decide on its civilian infrastructure and telecommunications.

“We can ask them or advise them but it’s up to Serbia to decide on the type of telecommunications it wants and how it wants to organize its civilian infrastructure. We welcome the fact that Serbia is a close partner to NATO. We cooperate with Serbia,” he said and recalled a recent civilian emergency services exercise in Serbia, his visit to Serbia and meeting with the Serbian president.

Stoltenberg said that NATO members and candidate countries have to meet some requirements in terms of civilian infrastructure and telecommunications such as 5G technology but added that this does not apply to non-member states.
