Diplomatic relations between the Republic of Bulgaria and Montenegro were established in 2006.
There are traditionally good relations between the Republic of Bulgaria and Montenegro, characterised by high and top-level regular political dialogue and by deepening cooperation in various areas of mutual interest. There are no unresolved or open issues of political sensitivity between Bulgaria and Montenegro. The traditionally good cooperation preserved over the years, as well as Montenegro's consistent progress in European integration, provide opportunities to expand bilateral contacts in many new areas.
The aspiration in the bilateral relations is aimed at creating the necessary conditions for increasing the visible trade and the tourist flow, expanding the direct contacts between the local authorities, and activating the cultural and educational exchange. There is a special potential for development of contacts in the field of energy and sustainable technologies.
