Montenegro Officially Invited to Join NATO’s Military Alliance

NATO has formally invited another nation to join its military alliance.

Montenegro has officially been invited to join the group.

The southeastern European nation has been on a path to join NATO since 2009.

Now, both sides will begin discussing the addition.

Montenegro already supports NATO’s efforts in Afghanistan and has helped the alliance in the past.

The move is not likely to go over well with Russia because it views NATO expansions as a threat to its security.
