30 June 2019 - Prime ministers of Montenegro and Azerbaijan, Duško Marković and Novruz Mammadov, agreed during the official talks, which took place in Baku recently, that relations between the two countries are very good and friendly, characterised by intense political dialogue and a high level of understanding, with the continuous strengthening of economic cooperation, and that they see a common interest in further intensification of economic cooperation and mutual support at the international level.
"With its modest potential, Montenegro contributes to peace and stability, and supports the sovereignty and independence of its partner countries, including Azerbaijan," Prime Minister Duško Marković stressed.
Public Relations Service within the Government of Montenegro reported that the two prime ministers noted that both countries today enjoy the benefits of hard-won independence, that they are linked by the fact that these are small, multi-ethnic and multi-religious countries that, in their still insufficiently stable regions, significantly boost cooperation within Balkan and Central Asian regions and contributes to world peace by developing good neighbourly relations and showing determination to resolve disputes.
PM Marković expressed satisfaction with the fact that Azerbaijan, by investing hundreds of millions of euros in the Porto Novi tourist resort, has become one of the largest investors in Montenegro, and he invited his Azerbaijani counterpart to visit Montenegro next year to mark the opening of this tourist resort.
"Investments from Azerbaijan contribute to the reputation and perspective of our dynamic economy. I want successful cooperation to continue and expand. I am delighted that you accepted to visit Montenegro next year and see on the field how two friendly countries create new value for the benefit of citizens," Prime Minister Marković pointed out.
