Prime Minister Krivokapić expressed satisfaction with the visit to Greece and the opportunity to discuss the possibilities of cooperation between the two friendly countries with the highest officials. As he pointed out, Montenegro and Greece share common traditional and cultural values based on which they can further improve cooperation in areas of mutual interest.
The President of the Assembly, Tasulas, thanked the Prime Minister for his visit to Greece and pointed out that he was familiar with Montenegro’s position in European integration. He also said that he believes that Montenegro will succeed in fulfilling all obligations from that process.
“Greece will provide full support to Montenegro in that,” Tasulas emphasized.

The interlocutors agreed that the perspective of the Western Balkans is in the European Union, and that the process should run as well and as quickly as possible.
The President of the Assembly of Greece also pointed out the importance that the Greek national hero and military leader, Vaso Brajović, who is originally from Montenegro, has in Greek history. After the meeting, the interlocutors visited the exhibition that was organized on the occasion of the 200th anniversary of the beginning of the fight for the independence of Greece.
Participating in the work of the 6th Delphi Economic Forum, Krivokapić said on Thursday evening that the Government of Montenegro will do everything to make Montenegro the first next member of the European Union.
