Podgorica, President Vujanović Receives the Co-Rapporteur of the PACE Monitoring Committee, Kimmo Sassi
President of Montenegro, Filip Vujanović, received today the co-rapporteur of the Monitoring Committee of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, Mr. Kimmo Sassi.

President Vujanović expressed appreciation for the strong contribution of the Council of Europe in the design and implementation of reforms in Montenegro, which spurred the good dynamics of our integration process of joining the EU and NATO. Montenegro is now in the phase of intensive negotiations with the EU and of realistic expectation of getting an invitation to join NATO.

The President emphasized the commitment of Montenegro to continue cooperation with the Council of Europe in all fields, considering that the decision of the Committee of Ministers to abolish the monitoring mission in Montenegro poses a strong recognition of the success of the reforms and their implementation.

The Co-rapporteur of the Monitoring Committee of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, Kimmo Sassi stated a very positive assessment of the progress of the integration of Montenegro in the reform processes. He particularly emphasized the role of Montenegro in the protection of minority rights and our determination to remain a reliable role-model in the region. Co-rapporteur Kimmo Sassi said that Montenegro has demonstrated readiness to ensure freedom of the press and noted as a positive example the recent detection of the perpetrators of attacks on independent daily ’’Vijesti’’ and the journalist of the daily ’’Dan’’. He also added that he expects the media to provide through professional activities a strong contribution to the advancement and democratization of Montenegro.
