In Montenegro, you have a reliable partner and a responsible member state promoting the European and Euro-Atlantic system of values in this part of the continent, said President of Montenegro, Milo Đukanović, at today’s meeting with André Lanata, NATO’s Supreme Allied Commander Transformation (SACT).
President Đukanović expressed satisfaction with the visit of Commander Lanata at a time when Montenegro is proudly marking its two-year membership in the Alliance.
During that period, as well as during the accession process, Montenegro recognized many chances that membership in the club offers, understanding the responsibility of membership and accepting that it is the only reliable perspective of stability in Southeast Europe.
Montenegro remains actively committed to NATO’s priorities and directions, including open door policy and support for the integration of North Macedonia, and presence in Alliance missions, according to President Đukanović.
The Commander of NATO’s Allied Command indicated that he was honored to visit Montenegro when we together mark such an important moment, that is, the completion of Montenegro’s integration into NATO.
“I am impressed with everything that has been done over the past two years, it was a collective effort, comprehensive and efficient. With your integration process, you served as an example to other countries in the region,” Commander Lanata said, thanking Montenegro for its support for North Macedonia on its full integration path.
