PODGORICA – Prime Minister of Montenegro Duško Marković participated earlier today in the regular meeting of EU member states’ ambassadors with Head of EU Delegation to Montenegro Aivo Orav, hosted by Ambassador of Bulgaria Mladen Červenjakov, as a diplomatic representative of the state presiding over the Council of the European Union.

At the two-hour meeting, which presented the priorities of the Bulgarian presidency – Future of Europe for Youth, the Western Balkans and Connectivity, Security and Stability and Digital Economy, Prime Minister Marković reiterated that, after successfully completing NATO membership, the process of European integration remains a strategic priority for  the Government.

“European agenda is the most important topic for the Government,” said the Prime Minister, pointing out Montenegro’s full commitment to continuing the reform process and fulfilling all the obligations from the accession process.

He welcomed the goals of the Bulgarian presidency as balanced and well-chosen, especially emphasising the positive fact that the Western Balkans are a priority of both the Bulgarian presidency and the next two cycles in which Austria and Romania will be presiding over the European Union.

The announced EU strategy, as well as the upcoming summits in Sofia and London, whose topics are the Western Balkans and its European perspective, are encouraging for the entire region, the meeting concluded.
