Our countries have excellent bilateral relations, and their full integration into the European Union (EU) has no alternative – it was assessed at today’s meeting of Montenegro’s and North Macedonia’s PMs Duško Marković and Zoran Zaev, held in Podgorica.
“Our bilateral relations are fantastic, we have no open issues but only the need to work together for the good of our countries and the entire region,” PM Marković underlined.
The meeting discussed the further European integration of the two countries.
“Both sides stressed the expectation that the EU internal consolidation process and the consideration of new modalities of the negotiation process would take place a.s.a.p, so the WB could progress more dynamically on the road to the EU. The Prime Minister of Montenegro highlighted that regardless of these processes in the EU, Montenegro remains fully committed to the reforms given in the European Agenda, which has no alternative,” it was in a statement.
