Zoran Djindjic posthumously decorated by Montenegro’s President

BELGRADE – Serbia’s slain prime minister Zoran Djindjic has been posthumously decorated in Belgrade with the Order of the Montenegrin Great Star by Montenegro’s President Filip Vujanovic, who said that Djindjic was a beacon of democracy who did much for the good relations between Serbia and Montenegro.

Presenting the honour to Djindjic’s wife Ruzica in the Montenegrin embassy in Belgrade on Tuesday, Vujanovic said that the slain Serbian prime minister invested a large part of his energy and enthusiasm in good relations between the two countries.

“I knew him personally and I cooperated with him while I was prime minister. I had the honour, the pleasure and the privilege of building good relations between Montenegro and Serbia with him,” Vujanovic said.

“I am very happy about this decoration because it is never too late for the right things. It comes 12 years after the murder of Zoran Djindjic, but every posthumous decoration affirms that everything he did in his lifetime was right,” Ruzica Djindjic said.

The Montenegrin president signed a decree decorating Djindjic on May 29.
