However, we will still continue to work on the further improvement of cooperation with the new content,” noted Prime Minister of Montenegro Duško Marković.
He, on the behalf of the nation, thanked Hungary and Minister Szijjarto for Hungary's strong and loud support towards the Montenegrin European Union integration path. Minister Szijjarto announced that Hungary will continue to do so and provide necessary help as much as it is possible.
