On the occasion of marking May 9th – Europe Day, on behalf of the Government of Montenegro, and in my own name, I am sending you my sincere congratulations and best wishes for further progress in the field of preserving the fundamental values of democracy, peace and freedom that have been connecting the European Union member states over the past 67 years.

Striving to become an integral part of the European mosaic and new achievements of the European Union, Montenegro has made significant steps forward on its integration path in the past period.
