PODGORICA, Montenegro: Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi says Italy will boost economic ties with tiny Montenegro.

Berlusconi says there is "wide space" for Italian businessmen to invest in the Adriatic country, particularly in the energy and transportation sectors.

Berlusconi spoke on Monday after meeting with Montenegrin Prime Minister Milo Djukanovic.

Djukanovic says Italy has expressed interest in the upcoming privatization of the state power company but also in building power plants in Montenegro and a power cable under the Adriatic Sea between the two countries.

Berlusconi pledged Italy's support for integration of Montenegro and other Balkan countries into the European Union.

Montenegro became independent from a union with Serbia in 2006.
