Mogherini: Montenegro's accession to NATO will promote stability in the region

The head of EU Foreign Affairs, Federica Mogherini, at a meeting with the Prime Minister of Montenegro, Milo Đukanović, in Brussels, welcomed the country's role in international politics as a reliable partner of the European Union, according to a statement by the European External Action Service on the results of the negotiations.

As noted in the document, Mogherini "expressed the EU’s appreciation for the full compliance of the country with all the positions of the EU's foreign policy and urged the Prime Minister to keep up these efforts."

"The entry of Montenegro into NATO will continue to promote stability in the region," the document says.

Last Tuesday, the President of the European Council, Donald Tusk, after his meeting with Milo Đukanović, said that the invitation for Montenegro to join NATO "is a recognition of Montenegro's efforts to reform the country and its contribution to Euro-Atlantic peace and security."
