Montenegro asks for UN membership
font size    

Montenegrin President Filip Vujanovic sent a letter to UN Secretary General Kofi Annan on Monday, asking for membership of the newly independent Balkan country in the most influential international organization.

In a letter to Annan, sent together with the adopted declaration on Montenegro's independence, Vujanovic said, "the Republic of Montenegro will adhere to the UN Charter and its principles and will carry out its obligations contained in the Charter."

On June 3, the Montenegrin parliament unanimously ratified the result of the independence referendum held on May 21, declaring Montenegro's independence from Serbia-Montenegro, a loose state union that was renamed from the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia in February 2003.

Montenegrin Foreign Minister Miodrag Vlahovic has asked for an international recognition of Montenegro as a sovereign and independent country in his letters to UN Security Council member- countries, EU member-countries, neighboring countries and other influential countries of the world.

"Montenegro is ready to establish diplomatic relations" respecting all principles of the international law, said Vlahovic, adding that Montenegro would make efforts to become a member of relevant international organizations in the shortest possible period of time.
