“‘Montenegro confirms its commitment to continuously contributing to world peace and equality among people,’ said Prime Minister Duško Marković, speaking at the UN General Assembly at the Nelson Mandela Peace Summit, held on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the Nobel Peace Prize.

‘During the disintegration of Yugoslavia, Montenegro, despite the challenges and conflicts in the environment, preserved internal stability and opened its borders to hundreds of thousands of refugees and displaced persons, which was a natural choice for our country. It was a multicultural and multiethnic tolerant environment. On the foundations of interlaced nations, religion, culture, we restored independence exactly one hundred and nine years after our first world peace mission,’ Markovic said.” (translated from RTCG)
