The United States announced it has formally recognized Montenegro as a sovereign and independent state.
U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, in a statement Tuesday, said, "We congratulate the people of Montenegro for the peaceful and democratic manner in which they conducted their May 21 vote on independence."
Voters in Montenegro voted May 21 to dissolve the union with Serbia, with 55.5 percent of those voting seeking independence. European officials had set a threshold of 55 percent to consider the vote binding.
Rice said the United States will soon consider Montenegro's request on establishing diplomatic relations
