The Government of Montenegro has adopted a report determining joint border crossings with Bosnia and Herzegovina following negotiations between the two countries in March, the Montenegrin Government said on Friday.
Negotiations between the Government of Montenegro and Bosnia’s Council of Ministers were held in Sarajevo on March 11 and 12 and resulted in the initialling of four annexes to the agreement which determined the locations of future joint border crossings.
In Montenegro, the joint border crossings will be Vracenovići – Deleusa, on the route Niksic – Bileca, and Scepan Polje – Hum, on the route Pluzine – Foca, while in Bosnia, the joint border crossings will be Zupci – Sitnica, on the route Trebinje – Herceg Novi and Klobuk – Ilino Brdo, on the road Trebinje-Niksic, the statement said.
The Montenegrin Government has at the session also determined the basis for conducting negotiations on concluding the Protocol on determining the border point between Montenegro, Bosnia and Croatia.
According to the statement, Montenegro is committed to resolving bilateral issues with its neighbours and to concluding and implementing international agreements on the state border as one of the top priorities in the European Union accession process, which will contribute to improving good neighbourly relations and respecting territorial integrity and sovereignty.
The statement pointed out that Montenegro's relations with Bosnia and Croatia are a positive example of good-neighbourly and friendly cooperation.
