New Zealand Embassy Rome, Italy

New Zealand and Montenegro strengthen bilateral ties

Following participation in this year’s Croatia Forum in Dubrovnik on 10-12 July, the Foreign Minister of New Zealand, Hon. Murray McCully made a bilateral visit to Montenegro on 12-13 July.  The visit was the first by a New Zealand Minister to the Balkan republic where he was hosted by the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs and European Integration of Montenegro, Mr. Igor Lukšić.

Mr McCully said he hoped his visit to Podgorica would “help to strengthen New Zealand's growing friendships in this part of the world, and demonstrate our commitment to engaging with small states”.

New Zealand and Montenegro have agreed to accredit non-resident ambassadors to each other’s capital.  The New Zealand ambassador in Rome, Dr Trevor Matheson is expected to present credentials to President Filip Vujanović in September.
