Prime Minister Dusko Markovic announced that NATO membership is the most important achievement in the first year of the work of the Government headed by him.
He assessed that the work of the Government as a whole and of all ministers individually, in the first year of the mandate, was successful. He accused the opposition of using every opportunity to try to compromise the state and its institutions.
At the press conference on the occasion of the anniversary of the 41st Government of Montenegro, Markovic recalled that in June this year, we became 29 members of NATO.
As he said, Montenegro has secured the country’s security, economic growth and development.
“I highlight this event as the most important achievement in the first year of the work of the Government,” Markovic said, noting that Montenegro’s European integration is no less significant.
He recalled that Montenegro has opened 28 negotiating chapters, and that in the coming weeks it is expected to open at least two more chapters.
The goal of this Government is, as he said, is that Montenegro ends negotiations with the European Union (EU).
“While doing these two integration processes, we did not ignore regional co-operation,” Markovic said.
He recalled the social environment in which the government implemented its program.
“The results we have just talked about were realized in the atmosphere of the most aggressive political destruction by the opposition parties, who boycotted the work of the parliament. They used every opportunity to try to compromise the state and its institutions,” Markovic said.
The opposition’s boycott of the parliament, he said, complicated the political scene, although the government, as he said, did not produce the situation.
“In order to overcome it, I offered dialogue to the opposition, even places in my cabinet, more than once,” Markovic said, reminiscentof the fierce challenges of constituting the new government.
Markovic said that the impression is that some parties, part of the media and the NGO sector, created a sinergy not to speak about the real results of the government, but to challenge its credibility and to foretell a quick end.
