Orban told his counterpart that ‘Great opportunities are ahead of us. We will be glad to take part in modernising the Montenegrin economy,’ with Marković saying that ‘Hungarian investors are welcome, Montenegro is becoming more and more attractive to companies from all over the world and we are especially looking forward to see our partners and friends, such as Hungary, recognise that they can use it in mutual interest.”

Regarding Montenegro and its NATO membership, the Hungarian premier noted this:

‘You have not chosen only an organisation, but your future as well. Hungarians are also part of that future, as we are a NATO member. I see real opportunities for Montenegro to become a member and EU soon … I can say that Montenegro is essentially ready for membership in the EU.'” (Balkan EU)
