ATHENS – The very good bilateral relations between Greece and Montenegro and their common vision for the wider region were reaffirmed at a meeting on Tuesday between President of the Hellenic Republic Katerina Sakellaropoulou and Montenegro’s President Milo Djukanovic, who is paying a two-day official visit to Greece. This is the first visit by a Montenergrin president following the country’s independence in 2006.
Sakellaropoulou underlined Greece’s unwavering commitment to the European prospects of the Western Balkans and Greece’s support for Montenegro’s European course.
As Sakellaropoulou said, “Greece believes that in periods with increasing international challenges, such as the one we are experiencing now, the European perspective of the Western Balkans is in Europe’s economic and political interests but also an incentive for these countries to make the necessary reforms”.
On his part, Djukanovic thanked his Greek counterpart for Greece’s constant support and assistance to Montenegro and all other Western Balkan countries in their European course.
