Claims of the NGO Union of Seafarers that after the meeting held between the Minister of Transport and Maritime Affairs, Mr Osman Nurković, and the US Ambassador Judy Rising Reinke, it’s still uncertain whether the Montenegrin seafarers will be allowed to enter the USA are malicious and false, stated the Ministry of Transport and Maritime Affairs.
Regardless of bald statements of the Union of Seafarers, the Ministry perfectly knows its responsibilities and adequately reacts whenever the seafarers’ interest has been endangered.
“We think these claims are unfounded as the Ministry quickly reacted, made some concrete steps and got the information that the visa policy of the USA hasn’t changed,” the Ministry of Transport told Pobjeda daily.
Following the meeting with Ambassador Reinke, the representatives of the Ministry stated that the meeting attendees stressed the significance of smooth employment and navigation of the Montenegrin seafarers.
“The Ministry reacted to calls of a certain number of seafarers and not the initiative of the Union of Seafarers.”
