Prime Minister Duško Marković said that the case of Branka Milić, accused of attempting a terrorist attack on the day of parliamentary elections on 16 October 2016, will not undermine relations between Montenegro and Serbia.

Responding to journalists' questions in the Parliament of Montenegro following the Prime Minister's Questions, PM Marković said that Milić had requested refuge in the Embassy of Serbia and that they did not expect that.

"The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has called the Ambassador and set a deadline of a few days to give explanation. What I expect, what the judiciary in Montenegro expects is that Milić remains within reach of judicial authorities in order to continue the process," the Prime Minister said, adding that there are procedures to resolve this issue under international standards and agreements between the two countries.
