Politics: 12 June 2006, Monday.

Bulgaria's foreign minister has issued a statement that acknowledges the independence of Montenegro, it was announced Monday.

Minister Ivaylo Kalfin has informed Montenegrin colleague Miodrag Vlahovic that Sofia shares the EU position of acknowledging Montenegro, and is willing to establish diplomatic relations with Europe's newest country.

Bulgaria will support Montenegrin state institutions in their efforts for democratic consolidation of the society, Kalfin's message said, as quoted by Bulgarian media.

Montenegro became an independent state earlier in June, after a referendum showed slight predominance of people willing to part ways with Serbia.

The breakup was the last stage of the dissolution of former Yugoslavia.
