Montenegrin President Milo Djukanovic has said that Serbia is “working unbelievably hard against its own interests,” adding that the spirit of hate toward Montenegro and everything Montenegrin has been unleashed, which is why the relations between the two countries are at their lowest.
According to him, what the official Belgrade had done to Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Kosovo during the 1990s is now being done to his country.
The proof he sees in the “crazed campaign, run from Serbia, for the local elections in Niksic, the second largest city in Montenegro.”
“The Battle for Niksic’ is being waged in Serbia, on Happy TV, which is the name of its newly launched show. The battle is waged with the intention of conquering Niksic. Niksic has to fall so that Montenegro falls. So, we’re witnessing Serbia’s expansionist politics towards its neighbors once again, in this case Montenegro. This is why our relations are at their lowest,” Djukanovic reasoned.
Djukanovic also said that it is realistic to expect the U.S.’ speedy return to the Euro-Atlantic community, and likewise its renewed presence in the Western Balkans, because the representatives of the U.S.’ new administration are experts on this region.
