Montenegrin FM Milan Roćen has welcomed the initiative of his Serbian counterpart for a meeting of the foreign ministers of all former Yugoslav countries.
They would discuss prospects for Serbia to host the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) summit in 2011, on the 50th anniversary of the organization.
Roćen’s support is based on the facts that the former Yugoslavia was one of the founding and leading member-states of the movement and that Montenegro is one of the successors of that historically and politically important heritage, Political Director in the Montenegrin Foreign Ministry Vesko Garčević said.
This will be a good opportunity for the successors to the former Yugoslavia to demonstrate their commitment to mutual cooperation, he said.
Garčević expects the meeting of the region’s foreign ministers to be held at the beginning of the 64th session of the UN General Assembly, which starts on September 23 in New York, in order to prepare the summit.
