President of Montenegro Milo Đukanović met today with the UN Secretary-General António Guterres in Geneva.

They mutually appreciated the opportunity to meet again, which confirms continued dialogue at the highest level and excellent cooperation between Montenegro and the United Nations.

Today's decision of the Parliament of Montenegro restoring the functionality of the Constitutional Court was welcomed. In a very open exchange, concerns were shared and opinions were exchanged about the situation in the Western Balkans, current processes and prospects for improving situation, especially in the context of strained relations on the global stage and increased involvement of international stakeholders.

The UN Secretary-General Guterres said that he follows developments in Montenegro with great interest, positively noting current steps forward and showing interest regarding organization of parliamentary elections. He said there were too many attempts from abroad to influence Montenegro and its citizens. The United Nations does not intervene in internal matters of any country, but Montenegro can count on any form of support in order to speed up the country's European path and strengthen its institutions.

President Đukanović thanked the UN Secretary-General for his commitment to the stability and prosperity of Montenegro and the Western Balkan region, reaffirming that Montenegro remains highly committed to cooperation with the United Nations. He informed about the situation in the country and the prospects for reaching a politically responsible and pro-European government, and stabilization of circumstances in the country through the upcoming presidential and parliamentary elections.
