Montenegro's Djukanovic says relations with Serbia have soured
02/02/2009, PODGORICA, Montenegro -- Prime Minister Milo Djukanovic said on Sunday (February 1st) that relations between Podgorica and Belgrade are at an "unacceptably" low level and that Serbia appears unwilling to accept a new ambassador from Montenegro. Podgorica's ambassador was expelled last year after Montenegro recognised Kosova's independence.
Djukanovic said on Sunday that the procedure to appoint a new ambassador will not begin until Belgrade makes clear the diplomat is welcome. Djukanovic also announced that Montenegro will soon establish diplomatic relations with Pristina and will choose "the model of representation" shortly after that.
