Podgorica, Montenegro (19 December 2018) -- Prime Minister Duško Marković and President of the Montenegrin Academy of Sciences and Arts (CANU) Dragan K. Vukčević noted at today's meeting that the history and culture of the country are the values that have been confirmed, and that development, civic harmony and dialogue create the identity of contemporary Montenegro, which should be consolidated and promoted by all social stakeholders.

"Montenegro is not a state of nations but a state of citizens. In such a state, any kind of nationalism is dangerous and unacceptable. The basic question is whether we have the answers citizens expect from us or whether we will maintain the status quo and seek for patriots and enemies," said Prime Minister Duško Marković. He added that social dialogue is considered possible and desirable on every topic, except on the topic of the State of Montenegro. "The State is the only topic that cannot be the subject of any dialogue," Prime Minister Marković stressed.

President of CANU, Academician Dragan K. Vukčević, noted that the goal of the synchronised action of all relevant segments of society should be Montenegro, which we aspire in the future.

"Europe will recognise our values depending on the efforts we are willing to make to attain that goal," said Academician Vukčević.

Prime Minister Marković stated that insufficient development is the key deficits in both Montenegro and the region, and that is why the Government from the beginning of its mandate has insisted on development policies and projects, primarily in the northern region, as the least developed one.

"That is why I started projects to make the best use of our undeniable economic resources," said the Prime Minister, adding that such a policy has already been recognised and appreciated beyond the borders of Montenegro. Therefore, the Prime Minister continued, the overall development is a task not only for the Government, but for all responsible social stakeholders. We will work together with the Academy to achieve the goals that are significant for the future of Montenegro," PM Marković concluded.
