PODGORICA – We want to see Montenegro in the European Union, said the head of the EU Delegation to Montenegro, Aivo Orav.

He believes that the Union has certain work to do in Montenegro as a candidate country. He mentioned 2025 as a possible date for Montenegro’s EU membership.

According to Orav, nobody said Montenegro and Serbia had to join the EU together.

“The best way to prepare is to do your homework in terms of closing negotiation chapters and in terms of the key elements of the fight against corruption, freedom of the media, the rule of law. Do your homework well and then contact us and say we are ready,” he said at the presentation of the book “EU and Montenegro – Accession Process” by author Gordana Đurović.
