The Montenegrin Foreign Ministry announced on Monday it would back Serbia’s Foreign Minister Vuk Jeremić in his run for president of the UN General Assembly.
Ministry’s director of multilateral and regional cooperation Zoran Janković said Podgorica supported its neighbors, especially the ones from the former Yugoslavia, whenever they ran for something within international organizations.
“There is no reason for it be different in this case. Especially since a high-ranking representative of Serbia is in question,” he stated.
Jeremić confirmed earlier he had entered the race to become the 67th president of the UN General Assembly, but added that the path to the office was long and complex.
