Austria: President Vujanović at the Conference in the UN Headquarters in Vienna
At the invitation of UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, President of Montenegro Filip Vujanović participated at the Second UN Conference on Landlocked Developing Countries, which was held in the UN Headquarters in Vienna.

President Vujanović was a keynote speaker at the main panel of the Conference, together with the UN Secretary General, Ban Ki-moon, UNDP Chief Administrator, Helen Clark, President of Georgia, Giorgi Margvelashvili and Minister for International Development Cooperation of Sweden, Isabella Lovin.

The address of the President as follows:


Dear UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon,
Dear representatives of the UN member states,
Dear hosts, representatives of the Austrian Government,
Ladies and Gentlemen,

I am honoured to address you on behalf of Montenegro and confirm that Montenegro joins the efforts of the United Nations and Secretary-General in solving special needs of the developing and least developed countries. Economic growth of these countries has significantly been limited due to their distance from the world market. As a transit and geographically small country, Montenegro sends a clear message from this Conference: the need for mobilization of additional international support for the landlocked developing countries as well as renewal of partnership with international financial and development institutions for these countries. This is crucial for full implementation of the basic document for the work of this Conference - Almaty Programme of Action.

After ten years, we can be sure that development of infrastructure and connection, integration of transport systems, especially railway system, together with fostering legal basis for cooperation with transit countries, are prerequisites for economic progress of the landlocked developing countries. The role of the United Nations in this context is important, especially when it comes to better coordination of technical and financial assistance, primarily financial institutions - UN affiliations- World Bank, IFC and major donors, as well as ensuring concessional credits. more

Geneva: President of Montenegro at the Crans Montana Forum
President of Montenegro Filip Vujanović took part in the panel "Securing a long-term stability in the South Eastern Europe", which was held today in the framework of the Crans Montana Forum dedicated to "Homeland and Global Security" in Geneva.

The address of the President Vujanović as follows:

Distinguished Presidents and participants of the Forum,
Dear Ambassador Carteron,
Ladies and Gentlemen,

I would like to express my appreciation to the Ambassador Jean Paul Carteron for dedicating special session to the stability in the South East Europe in the framework of this Forum. Geneva and Switzerland are, indeed, inspirational for discussion on this topic, as their history proved that long-term peace and coexistence of different nations is not an utopia, but a feasible reality.

When analyzing stability of the South East Europe, we must always have in mind that we talk about the region where extensive war conflicts took place in the last century, including both World Wars. The Balkan wars preceded the World War I. The First World War, the centenary of which has been marked this year, started in the Balkan region. The Second World War caused huge loss of lives and devastation in the South East Europe. Only 45 years after its end, new tragic conflict took place in the Balkans, so that the end of the last and beginning of this century would be remembered by victims and devastation as a result of breakup of former Yugoslavia. more

New York: President of Montenegro Addresses UN Climate Summit
The President of Montenegro Filip Vujanović addressed today the Climate Summit at the United Nations Headquarters.

The following is the text of the speech by President Vujanović:

Distinguished Chair,
Your Excellencies,
Ladies and Gentlemen,

First of all, I wish to express my gratitude to the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon for the organization of the Climate Summit. The Summit is an exceptional opportunity for the UN member states, representatives of public, private and civil sectors to present their estimates and ideas with a view to reducing the greenhouse gas emissions and strengthening the climate resistance. The Summit is also an opportunity to mobilize the political will towards the global 2015 Agreement. The fact that the Summit is not a part of the negotiation process within the UN Framework Convention (UNFCCC) contributes to the acceptance of opinions and ideas from various levels and sectors.

Montenegro has an active and constructive relation towards the negotiations within this Framework Convention and attributes great attention to other international initiatives supporting the UN efforts in reaching a new international agreement on climate. more

However, July 13th, our Statehood Day, holiday of all our citizen, surpasses each of them and deserves the widest respect.

The second July 13th, back in 1941, was the date when the citizens of Montenegro, in the great anti-fascist uprising, massively and determinedly, beyond all ideological and social boundaries, said "NO" to the fascism and subjection, thus eternally and widely celebrating freedom-loving spirit of Montenegro, in the then occupied Europe. more
