Former European Commission president Jose Manuel Barroso has said he hopes Montenegro will sooner or later join the EU.

He did not want to announce a precise date, but, as he pointed out, both Montenegrin and European sides were prepared for that.

“I can not specify whether it will be before 2025, but I hope that Montenegro will become a member as soon as possible. I noticed that the state administration has capable people who are able to meet all EU criteria,” Barroso told reporters.

He hopes the EU will overcome the crisis.
