font size    

The Serbian government recognized Montenegro as an independent country on Thursday.

Conditions have been set for the Serbian government to recognize, on behalf of the Republic of Serbia, the Republic of Montenegro and to establish diplomatic relations, which will contribute to the development of friendly and good-neighborly relations, the Serbian government said.

Montenegro declared independence on June 3 following the referendum on May 21, when 55.5 percent of its citizens voted to split from the state union with Serbia.

On June 8, Iceland took the lead in recognizing Montenegro's independence. Many European countries, along with the United States, followed suit.

The Serbian government has also instructed the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the Ministry of Education and Sports to prepare necessary documents for Montenegrin citizens with residence in Serbia to gain citizenship of the Republic of Serbia, and Montenegrin students in Serbian universities to have equal status as Serbian citizens.
