Pointing to the importance of the visit of members of the House of Representatives of the United States, DPM Pažin said that their stay in Montenegro is a testimony of full commitment to strengthening the friendly and partner relations between the two countries. He expressed the belief that such a relationship will be upgraded with new joint activities that are important for the stability and prosperity of our country. DPM Pažin informed the distinguished guests about the plans for further work of Montenegro in the field of the rule of law, in order to create a safe environment for continuing economic growth and improving the standards of living of citizens in Montenegro.
