He regrets Montenegro’s decision to join NATO.
“Montenegro has succumbed to the ultimatum – either Russia or NATO and decided to ignore the economic aspect and to sacrifice relations with Russia. Let the Montenegrin and NATO leaders have this decision on their conscience,” Lavrov said, according to Sputnik.
Lavrov also commented on the accusations of Russia’s provocative actions in the Balkans.
“We are not afraid of such statements, our positions coincide with the positions of many Balkan countries,” said Lavrov.
