Montenegro and Romania have a high-quality and constructive parliamentary cooperation, which is especially significant during the current Romanian presidency of the Council of the EU - it was said at today’s meeting of the Chairperson of the Committee on International Relations and Emigrants Mr Andrija Nikolić and Chairperson of the Legislative Committee Ms Marta Šćepanović with the Ambassador of Romania to Montenegro H.E. Mr Ferdinand Nagy.
Ms Šćepanović and Mr Nikolić reminded of the traffic accident from June 2013, when on the main road Kolašin-Podgorica 18 citizens of Romania had died, while 29 had been severely injured, with the note that this accident, after the railway accident in Bioče, was the largest traffic accident in Montenegro, according to the number of the dead and the injured. The chairpersons of the two committees proposed an initiative, in cooperation with the Municipality of Kolašin, for the Municipality of Kolašin to erect a memorial in the memory of victims of this accident in the town itself, as well as for the Municipality of Kolašin to become a twin city with one of the Romanian municipalities.
The Romanian Ambassador used an opportunity to once again voice his gratitude to the responsible institutions and the citizens of Montenegro for the help given during and after this tragic event.
