Zirojević: The new government and the parliamentary majority continue to disrupt good neighborly relations with neighboring countries

He said that the intention of the opposition is quite clear - that, as he said, it is necessary to make Montenegro a Belgrade outpost in the region, which, except for Serbia, would have bad relations with all other countries.

The new government and the parliamentary majority, after Kosovo and Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH), continue to disrupt good neighborly relations with neighboring countries, the Social Democrats (SD) assessed.

SD MP Nikola Zirojević stated in a statement that this time the target was Croatia - a member of the European Union (EU) and one of the countries that has so far given the strongest wind at Montenegro's back on its European path.

He said that the intention of the opposition is quite clear - that, as he said, it is necessary to make Montenegro a Belgrade outpost in the region, which, except for Serbia, would have bad relations with all other countries.

"However, this time we received a very clear message from Croatia, that this kind of behavior will certainly lead to jeopardizing Montenegro's European path," the announcement states.

Zirojević said that the insistence on this issue is not surprising from a part of the ruling majority embodied in the coalition For the Future of Montenegro, which, as he assessed, is only declaratively in favor of European integration.

"But it's also a dangerous message when relations with our closest EU neighbor are knowingly and openly corrupted by a political subject whose mouth is full of Europe," said Zirojević.

As he said, the happiness for Montenegro is that Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Kosovo know that there is an opposition in Montenegro that is sincerely committed to European integration and good neighborly relations with all neighbors who really want it.

"That is why it is our obligation to ask the representatives of the majority to stop the political fights in a way that causes direct damage to Montenegro and to resolve disagreements within the coalition between their four walls, without further embarrassing the country in front of our international partners," the statement said.
