Montenegrin minister: Independent Montenegro would not wait long for admission in world organizations
Podgorica, Jan 24, IRNA


Montenegrin Minister for Foreign Economic Relations and European Integrations Gordana Djurovic said Tuesday that Montenegro would not have to wait long to be accepted in international organizations in case it proclaims independence, reported the Serbian news agency Tanjug.

She noted that in case of independence, Montenegro would have to request readmission in international organizations, adding that the experience shows this process is very short if there is political support from international community.

Djurovic asserted that the process of accession of Montenegro in the European Union would not suffer due to a possible proclamation of state independence.

Meanwhile EU special envoy for Montenegrin dialogue Miroslav Lajcak on Monday remarked that the authorities and opposition could bring their stands on conditions for a referendum on state status closer.

Following his meeting with the Prime Minister Milo Djukanovic and Parliament Speaker Ranko Krivokapic, Lajcak told reporters that he is satisfied with the fact that the authorities and opposition had made serious preparations for the talks and that 'constructive meetings' were held.

He specified that in the first round of talks top officials of the ruling and opposition parties handed him platforms for solving the outstanding issues. Without specifying their contents, Lajcak clarified that he would analyze the documents and inform Montenegrin negotiators about his proposals.

The union of Serbia and Montenegro was voted into existence by the Yugoslav parliament in February 2003. The union arrangement is to remain in place for a minimum of three years after which the two republics can hold referenda on whether to keep or scrap it.
