President of the Parliament meets the President of Greece

- The role of parliaments, as the strongest basis and pillar of the EU member states, is enormous, because the Union is based on the representative democracy and the rule of law - it was concluded, among other things, at the meeting of President of the Parliament of Montenegro Mr Ivan Brajović with President of the Hellenic Republic Mr Prokopios Pavlopoulos.

President Brajović pointed out that the parliamentary dimension of strengthening stability and cooperation among countries in the region would be especially covered at the upcoming 16th Conference of Speakers of Parliaments of the Adriatic-Ionian Initiative which will be held in Budva on 18 and 19 March, where Deputy Speaker of the Hellenic Parliament Mr Georgios Varemenos will also participate.

The President of the Hellenic Republic emphasised that the international role of Montenegro was measured by the degree of its Europeanism and in line with consistent implementation of principles it shared with the community of European nations. The Parliament of Montenegro could significantly contribute to this, by cooperating with European parliaments and by adopting European legislation.

President Brajović thanked Greece for its support so far on Montenegro’s Euro-Atlantic and European path and pointed out that excellent political relations should be enhanced with stronger cooperation in the field of economy.
