Gorčević with Varhelyi: Montenegro committed to obligations from the negotiation process

The Minister of European Affairs, Maida Gorčević, spoke today in Brussels with the European Commissioner for Enlargement and Neighborhood, Oliver Varhelyi.

The European Commissioner said that Montenegro, after a period of stagnation, must take advantage of favorable internal and external circumstances to fulfill key tasks and implement the necessary reforms.

Varhelji expressed the expectation that in the coming period, Montenegro will succeed in mobilizing all its capacities to fulfill the temporary benchmarks from Chapters 23 and 24, which are crucial for the further process of accession with the European Union.

“I believe that all prerequisites have been created for a stable and European Government, together with a functional legislative and judicial branch of government, to intensify reforms in the field of the rule of law. It is in our mutual interest to speed up the negotiation process. We are counting on Montenegro and we continue to strongly support you on that path,” said the commissioner.

Minister Gorčević conveyed the full commitment and determination of the Government, in cooperation with the other two branches of government, to fulfill the remaining obligations from the area of rule of law, as soon as possible.

“I am here to convey a message about the consensus of the political parties, but also to express the strong commitment of all ministers in the Government to the obligations arising from the EU agenda,” said Gorčević.

She pointed out that the election of the seventh judge of the Constitutional Court, less than a month after the formation of the Parliament and the election of the Government, is the first step by which Montenegro shows a clear commitment to the obligations from the negotiation process.

“We have promising messages from the Parliament, and I believe that we will appoint the remaining high positions in the judiciary in a short period. Montenegro will again be a good example and a source of positive news in the Balkans,” said Gorčević.
