Serbia, Montenegro relations best since establishment

BELGRADE – The relations between Serbia and Montenegro are at the best level since their establishment in the 19th century, Montenegrin Ambassador to Serbia Branislav Micunovic said at a reception held on the occasion of Montenegro’s Statehood Day.

Serbia and Montenegro have mutual respect and honor the traditional friendly relations of their peoples, Micunovic said at the reception in Belgrade’s Hyatt Hotel on Monday evening.

He underlined that today there are no open issues between Serbia and Montenegro and expressed satisfaction that such good relations will be left as legacy for the future generations.

Through such a good cooperation, the two countries are investing in the common future of the entire region and showing a mutual interest in international support along the EU accession pathway, he said.

Micunovic said that Montenegro is marking one of the greatest events in its history – the day of uprising of the Montenegrin people against the fascist occupiers and historic aspiration for statehood and freedom.

“We are celebrating this great holiday in libertarian Belgrade, in friendly Serbia, that knows very well what the fight for a country and freedom is. For the reason, we are able to understand each other more easily and to feel mutual respect,” the Montenegrin ambassador underlined.

The reception was attended by Serbian Parliament Speaker Maja Gojkovic, Serbian Patriarch Irinej, ministers, representatives of the diplomatic corps and cultural and public life.
