Milatović pointed out that a more active and numerous group in the Congress would significantly contribute to the strengthening of political and economic ties, "which would open up space for promoting Montenegrin economic potential and opening up new opportunities for cooperation."

Congressmen expressed their willingness to continue cooperation and support initiatives that, as stated, will further strengthen bilateral relations between Montenegro and the USA.

The press release points out that it was agreed at the meeting that both parties will work on strengthening institutional support through concrete steps that will be taken in the coming period.

The importance of the Western Balkans region for the safety and security of Europe was confirmed, "the interlocutors agreed that it is necessary to further strengthen the resilience of Montenegro and the countries of the region, through the fight against misinformation, the strengthening of institutions, the media sector, but also the affirmation of the concept of civil society."
