US Vice President Mike Pence has said that all NATO allies were equally important and that the US thinks that there were no ‘’small’’ allies. At the press conference in Vila Gorica after the meeting with Montenegrin Prime Minister Dusko Markovic
Pence said it was a great honor for him to be in Montenegro where they can together mark success of the country for joining NATO alliance.
The second most powerful man in US said that Montenegro’s membership in NATO ‘’only 10 years after restoring independence, is a historic success. And we congratulate you on your great success. The US has no ‘small’ allies and all its allies are equally important. We believe that the future of the Western Balkans is in the West and I am looking forward to building cooperation with the countries of the region,” Pence said.
At the press, Prime Minister Dusko Markovic has said that ‘’ today is a confirmation that the hard, diligent and dedicated work gives results ’’ and that Montenegro was an example for that. He added that this day is a confirmation that dreams do come true.
“We have tied our destiny to the values promoted and defended by this alliance. Today is a confirmation that there are big and small in the international community only when it comes to the size and the population of a country, but not in terms of belonging to the ideals,” Markovic pointed out thanking Pence for confirming that by coming to Montenegro.
Markovic is convinced that ‘’the talks will further strengthen the determination to enrich cooperation of two countries, primarily in terms of economy’’.
