Montenegro, Kosovo establish diplomatic relations.

By bne IntelliNews January 18, 2010
The country has established diplomatic relations with Kosovo after foreign ministers Milan Rocen and Skender Hiseni exchanged letters, the government press office informed. The exchange of ambassadors between the two countries will follow the recognition of a Montenegrin minority in Kosovo. Podgorica demands the recognition of such minority with an official status and representation in Kosovos parliament. Serbian authorities reacted immediately to the motion by issuing a demarche to Montenegro and summoning the Serbian ambassador in Podgorica, Zoran Lutovac, back to Belgrade for consultation. We note that Montenegro officially recognised Kosovos independence in October/2008, which worsened the relations with Belgrade . Serbia expelled then the Montenegrin ambassador.
