Malta is among the first European countries to extend its recognition to Montenegro as a sovereign independent state following its declaration of independence from Serbia on 21 May.

Maltas intentions to formally extend full recognition to independent Montenegro were made known immediately following the meeting of EU Foreign Ministers in Luxembourg on Monday, during which Members States agreed to recognise Montenegros independence.

Malta welcomes this new Mediterranean state to the international community and augurs every success and prosperity to the people of Montenegro. Malta also hopes that Montenegro will continue to strengthen relations with its neighbours in the interest of stability in the region, commented Foreign Minister Frendo.
Foreign Minister Frendo was on Monday participating in the EU Foreign Ministers Council in Luxembourg.

Other issues discussed during the General Affairs and External Relations Council included illegal immigration, enlargement and the signing of the Stabilisation and Association Agreement with Albania.
