Montenegro marks National Day. US ugres Montenegro to fight orgnanize crime. NATO membership only choice for Montenegro, president Vujanovic claims.
Montenegro marks the Nationa Day – July13 , when the great powers at the Congress of Berlin in 1878 recognized Montenegro as an independent state. The popular uprising against the Axis occupation in Montenegro began on the same day in 1941.
The US Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland called on Montenegro to consolidate the rule of law and change public perception of the effectiveness in fighting organised crime and corruption. She saidthat the US government strongly supports the legislative and institutional reforms in the judiciary and rule of law in terms of combating organised crime and corruption. Reliability of the judiciary is essential to confirm the efforts being invested in the reform process and expectations of the citizens.
Montenegro has already made its choice – a state regulated in the spirit of democracy and the rule of law, with full affirmation of human rights, prosperity of citizens and a strong economic development, the President of Montenegro, Filip Vujanovic, wrote in an article titled “Montenegro in Euro-Atlantic integrations”, adding that joining NATO represented the highest national priority.
