Government representatives say that Mr Marković’s visit to the Vatican is aimed at further strengthening already stable political relations and highest-level dialogue.
“The fundamental agreement between Montenegro and the Holy See, signed in June 2011, represents a platform for deepening and improving overall inter-state relations. Two parties attach great importance to its full application and thus organize regular sessions of the Mixed Commission to discuss bilateral questions and other questions relevant to the Catholic community and the Catholic church in Montenegro”, said Government representatives.
The visit to the Vatican will enhance cooperation between the two states, especially in the domain of political dialogue. They will discuss the possibility of Pope Francis’ visit to Montenegro.
“The fundamental agreement between Montenegro and the Holy See regulates the most important segments of bilateral relations. Therefore, activities related to its implementation are expected to become more dynamic”.
Mr Marković’s official visit to the Holy See means the continuation of the highest-level talks, based on the principles of mutual respect, tolerance and understanding.
“At the same time, this visit is a chance to highlight how important it is for us to cooperate with the Holy See and to demonstrate our resolve to pledge support for the opening of Holy See’s nunciature in Podgorica. The visit will confirm a constructive approach to the implementation of the Fundamental agreement through regular sessions of the Mixed Commission”, concluded representatives of the Government.
