Osmani – Radulovic meeting in Podgorica

The Foreign Minister of the Republic of North Macedonia, Bujar Osmani, during his official visit to Montenegro, met with his Montenegrin counterpart DjordjeRadulovic. The meeting reaffirmed the traditional and friendly relations between the two countries, and emphasized the readiness to find tangible forms for enrichment of sector cooperation, particularly in the real sector – economy, trade, tourism, etc. “It is always good to be among friends, visiting a friendly country, and North Macedonia and Montenegro are a good example of that. I consider today’s visit to Montenegro important both for our bilateral relations, which I also regard as excellent, and for the whole region, which is still burdened with serious challenges, especially its European future”, emphasized Osmani, thanking his colleague Radulovic for the pleasant hospitality during his first visit to Podgorica. In addition to bilateral relations, the meeting also discussed topics of cooperation within the NATO Alliance, as well as the completion of the European perspectives of the two countries. The EU enlargement process, or, more precisely – completion or unification of the continent in one union – has no alternative. When it comes to Western Balkan countries’ EU membership, the question is not ‘if’, but ‘how and when’!” Osmani emphasized.
