Brussels, Belgium (25 May 2017) – Montenegro is ready and has capacity to meet NATO membership requirements, thus contributing to peace and stability worldwide, Prime Minister Duško Marković highlighted in Brussels.

PM Marković will attend the meeting of NATO Heads of State and Government which is about to start soon. He also attended the ceremony of opening the new Headquarters in Brussels, which was also attended, inter alia, by presidents of the USA and France, Donald Trump and Emmanuel Macron.
