Why did the EU and the U.S. insist on the construction of the Neum corridor?
The BiH and Croatian authorities did not remember by themselves that they should change the corridor at Neum.
This suggestion - or more precisely, request - was given by the European Union, U.S., NATO and the Joint Military Staffvof the United States Army, croportal.ba reports.
In the NATO classification of roads, this corridor is named ''Attica Corridor" (C11-South - Black Cat). The route of the Adriatic - Ionic road was laid along the Adriatic and the Ionian Sea, or from Trieste in Italy to Kalmeta and Igoumanitse in Greece.
The road would pass through Italy, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Albania and Greece in a length of about 1600 kilometers. The Adriatic - Ionian Highway for many years has been considered a crucial project that would revive dormant southern Europe.
The Adriatic-Ionian corridor, which is actually pushed only by the representatives of NATO, is in fact only a fragment of a network of major highway roads, which are called nuclear or nuclear road corridors. In case of an attack, this corridor would connect NATO's member states from Germany to Greece. These roads are large enough for the passage of mobile intercontinental nuclear missiles to the Middle East and Iran from bases in Germany and Spain.
