Montenegro

Greece recognized the state of Montenegro on 13 June 2006, and during the visit of Montenegro’s Foreign Minister to Athens in December of the same year, the two countries signed a protocol on the establishment of diplomatic relations. In February 2007, the General Consulate in Podgorica, set up in 1998, became an Embassy. Today, the embassy in Podgorica also has a Consular Bureau and a Defence Attaché Office.

Political Relations

Political relations between the two countries are at a very satisfactory level. Greece firmly supports Montenegro’s European and Euroatlantic perspective within the framework of its overall strategy on the Western Balkans. In addition, under the relevant bilateral Memorandum of Cooperation signed in 2011, Greece offers know-how concerning EU matters, aiming to accelerate Montenegro’s integration process.

Economic Relations

There are significant Greek investments in Montenegro, notably in the energy and tourism sectors.

Cultural Relations and Greek Community

The Greek state, through various institutions, offers university scholarships to Montenegro citizens to study in Greece, at undergraduate and postgraduate level. There is also a significant number of scholarships offered to Montenegrin officers for training in Greek military schools.
