PM Krivokapić: We will continue to implement the necessary reforms in the field of defence
Prime Minister Zdravko Krivokapić attended the ceremony on the occasion of the Day of the Armed Forces of Montenegro, 7 October, which was held in the "Milovan Šaranović" barracks in Danilovgrad. Congratulating the Day of the Armed Forces, the Prime Minister used the opportunity to thank the soldiers for everything they have done for Montenegro in the past period.
Especially in moments that were challenging for Montenegro and the whole world. During a pandemic and of course another plague that has hit Montenegro - wildfires. As always, you have responded to this task by showing solidarity and unity, as has always happened in Montenegro in crisis situations - all for one and one for all, said Prime Minister Krivokapić.
The Prime Minister, recalling the bright and victorious moments throughout history, said that today, in peacetime, as a member of the largest and most important military alliance on the planet, soldiers remained an unwavering defender of the state dignity of Montenegro and its stability.
Remaining consistently on the Euro-Atlantic path, this Government will continue to implement the necessary reforms in the field of defence, with an emphasis on improving and perfecting all the capacities of the Armed Forces of Montenegro. Globally, we continue to contribute to the Alliance's joint efforts to strengthen collective security and preserve peace, said the Prime Minister, recalling a note by a Norwegian writer who had the opportunity to see what a Montenegrin soldier was like in the late 19th century. He wrote how the chivalrous behaviour of Montenegrin soldiers remained unsurpassed in the history of European wars.
The Prime Minister expressed his personal admiration and respect for their perseverance and steadfastness. The biggest motto that obliges you is that everything starts and ends with training. Continue where you left off to defend Montenegro and its dignity and be a partner to all within the greatest Alliance, said Prime Minister Zdravko Krivokapić.
