Filip Vujanović, President of Montenegro
Mister Secretary General, Your Excellencies, Ladies and Gentlemen.
Let me first of all express appreciation to Mr. Secretary General and NATO member States for their decision to invite Montenegro to join the Partnership for Peace. It is a great event not only for Montenegro as a State but also for all its citizens, I believe to the region as a whole since the success of one country should be considered as a success which is important for all of us.
I'm confident it will speed up Montenegro integration to European Union.
I'm sure that Montenegro will be an able partner in the Partnership
Finally, I would like to stress our pleasure that we join the Partnership for Peace together with Serbia and Bosnia-Herzegovina. It is a positive message, new signals from the rest of the Balkan region, the message of our devotion to stability and cooperation, the signal of our first development in regional closeness.
I would like to thank you once more and to assure you, once again, the Montenegro will go to be a credible partner. Thank you for your attention.
