“We talked with Montenegrin Prime Minister about a few things, the bilateral relations between Montenegro and France, opening negotiation chapters as well as accession of Montenegro to NATO. As for NATO, Montenegro is the only country on the facade of the Mediterranean that is not NATO member . And I decided to send a letter to the NATO Parliamentary Assembly through the Senate and to support Montenegro’s candidacy, “said Larsen.
