Serbian Interior Minister Ivica Dacic says that Serbia and Montenegro are unlikely to reach an agreement on dual citizenship soon, as talks on the issue have been suspended for a year.
Dacic said that this was primarily due to the restrictiveness of Montenegro’s law, and underlined that Belgrade and Podgorica had not discussed the issue for over a year.
“Relations between Serbia and Montenegro should be kept in the rational domain. We should not cling to the past, but rather have relations which are completely unburdened,” Dacic said on Saturday.
While Serbia respects the decision by Montenegrin citizens to establish an independent state, the Serbian interior minister said, it is certain that there are no two nations in the whole world which are as close as Serbs and Montenegrins.
