Montenegro Press Review – December 12, 2014
Joining NATO does not mean a break with Russia; Chinese ready to employ own company for the construction of highway; French Senate strongly supports Montenegro’s NATO bid.
Joining NATO, from our point of view, does not mean that Montenegro should stop its historical ties with Russia. Unfortunately, Montenegro’s decision to seek membership in NATO and the EU is often portrayed as anti-Russian, the US Ambassador Sue K Brown said.
China’s Exim Bank is ready to propose companies from China that would consider the construction and investment in other parts of the motorway Bar-Boljare in Montenegro, according to the Memorandum of Understanding adopted by the Government on Thursday. Memorandum of Understanding between the Ministry of Finance and the Chinese Exim Bank will be signed next week, during the summit Prime Minister of China and the countries of Central and Eastern Europe in Belgrade.
French Senate will be actively engaged in supporting Montenegro’s full NATO membership at the NATO’s Parliamentary Assembly. Emphasising the positive effects of the NATO enlargement on this part of the Mediterranean, President of the French Senate Gérard Larcher told Prime Minister Milo Djukanovic that the Senate will address a letter of support to the NATO Parliamentary Assembly declaring a strong support for Montenegro’s Euro-Atlantic bid.
