Montenegro will continue its EU path, says president

Montenegrin President Filip Vujanovic said in Podgorica on Friday that the Britons' referendum decision to leave the European Union carried special delicacy and weight, and that demanded maximum dedication to the preservation of the unity of the EU's 27 members in order to preserve the EU's values.

Speaking to the Montenegrin Mina news agency, he said Montenegro welcomed European Council President Donald Tusk's position that the EU was willing to preserve its unity. "Montenegro will continue with its dedication to EU values and the European integration process," he said.

Montenegro's chief negotiator for EU membership, Aleksandar Pejovic, said the enlargement policy would remain one of the EU's most important policies and that he was confident that the EU would come out of this crisis "stronger, more stable and more homogeneous."
