06 December 2012 News

Montenegro is a country that currently is moving very dynamically on its path, starting with the opening of negotiations on EU accession. It is a country that is also working consistently on its Euro-Atlantic integration. It is investing in good relations with its neighbours, which is an important factor in its success and an example to the entire region. This was said by Minister Nickolay Mladenov at a news conference with Aleksandar Pejović, State Secretary for European Integration and Chief Negotiator for Negotiations on the Accession of Montenegro to the European Union, after their meeting in Sofia today.

The negotiation process requires serious effort and capacity and Bulgaria is ready to support Montenegro in this regard, Minister Mladenov said. The two countries have signed a Memorandum of Co-operation in the field of European and Euro-Atlantic integration, which we want to fulfil in a practical way. Bulgaria can share its experience and expertise in many areas related to preparations for membership, including mechanisms applied in the negotiation process, the approach when coming up with positions in that process, preparing the public administration and how to engage experts from civil society in the process, the Foreign Minister said.

Montenegro values Bulgaria's support and wants to continue to work towards deepening co-operation between the two countries in the field of European and Euro-Atlantic integration, State Secretary Pejovićsaid. We can work together for an even better and stable region, fully integrated into the EU, he said.

Minister Mladenov said that the two countries should endeavour to establish a mechanism for regular inter-governmental consultations.
