How long does Montenegro need to enter the Open Balkans according to Abazović
As to whether they will become part of the Open Balkans, the Prime Minister of Montenegro, Dritan Abazovic, said that they do not decide important things for two days.
However, Abazović said that his attitude is positive, but things that are of great importance for the future of the region should not be risked to be decided in two days, instead of being decided in 20-30 days or two months.
“For the sake of the citizens, we expect to create a document that will include much more information. I believe that people in Montenegro do not have enough information about the Open Balkans. My attitude is very positive, I am pro. But for things that are of great importance for the future of the region, we should not take risks just because we want to make a decision in two days instead of deciding in 20-30 days or two months,” Abazović said in a interview for rts, after his two-day visit to Belgrade.
The Montenegrin Prime Minister emphasized that the Open Balkans can be called a child of the Berlin process, or the continuation of this process.
“When it comes to whether it contradicts the Berlin process – it is not. It is fully compatible and the Open Balkans can be called a child of the Berlin process or a continuation of the Berlin process. Do we encourage all six countries to be part of the initiative? We are also trying to make everything compliant with European regulations. We are in favor of the Open Balkans helping us to be economically competitive with each other and to train our economic being and create a good assumption that tomorrow, when we will all be members of the European Union, we will be as more successful in relation to the already member states”, emphasizes Abazovic.
