UK's Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson congratulated Montenegro on its membership in the North Atlantic Alliance.

"NATO is the bedrock of our collective security and I welcome Montenegro as the 29th member. The UK has long been a firm supporter of Montenegro’s accession, as well as its commitment to reform and progress. I congratulate them on a historic step forward." Foreign Secretary Johnson stressed in his congratulation letter.

Montenegro, as Mr Johnson stated, now takes on both the benefits and responsibilities of NATO membership and collective defence.

"We look forward to building on our close relationship for the defence and security of our citizens," Mr Johnson pointed out in his letter of congratulation.
