The President of the Parliament of Montenegro Ivan Brajović and his Serbian counterpart, Maja Gojković, released a statement today at a joint press conference expressing solidarity in building friendly relations in the Western Balkans. The Montenegrin is currently on an official state visit to Serbia. The two look forward to working together within their governments with “no restrictions” on economic, infrastructure, and cooperation in tourism. The two countries were united under a union after the fall of Yugoslavia until 2006 when 55.5% of Montenegrins voted for independence in a referendum.
