President Rumen Radev arrived on an official visit to Montenegro on Sunday. He was met by a guard of honour in Podgorica.

On the welcoming delegation were Aleksa Becic, Deputy Prime Minister for Security, European and Foreign Affairs, Mladen Grgic, economic adviser to Montenegrin President Jakov Milatovic, Veljko Milonjic, Montengro’s Diplomatic Protocol Chief, Vassil Dourev, first secretary and head of the Bulgarian consulate in Podgorica and Dimitar Touchkov, commercial and economic adviser.

The Bulgarian president is visiting Montenegro at the invitation of his counterpart Jakov Milatovic.

On Monday, President Radev and his wife, Desislava Radeva, will be given a formal welcome by President Milatovic and his wife, Milena Milatovic, at Plavi Dvorac in Cetinje, the country's historical and cultural capital.

The two presidents will hold a one-to-one meeting and will lead the plenary talks between the official delegations. Radev and Milatovic will give a joint news conference.
In Podgorica, President Radev will also confer with Prime Minister Milojko Spajic and Parliament President Andrija Mandic.

The talks will focus on the further deepening and strengthening of bilateral cooperation in areas of mutual interest, as well as on Bulgaria's support for Montenegro's progress towards EU accession.
Bulgaria and Montenegro established diplomatic relations in 2006, the Foreign Ministry said on its website. The two countries have traditionally good relations, characterized by regular high- and top-level political dialogue, as well as by deepening cooperation in areas of mutual interest. There are no unresolved or open politically sensitive issues between Bulgaria and Montenegro.

The traditionally good cooperation and Montenegro's consistent progress in European integration have made it possible to expand contacts in many new areas. Bilateral relations aim to create prerequisites for increasing trade and tourism flows, expand direct contacts between local authorities and step up cultural and educational exchanges. There is a particular potential for developing contacts in energy and sustainable technology.

The last official bilateral visits of the presidents of the two countries were respectively on February 20, 2023, when the then Montenegrin President Milo Djukanovic was on an official visit to Sofia, and on July 11-12, 2022, when Rumen Radev was on an official visit to Montenegro.
