ARTEK (Yalta), July 7. /TASS/. Moscow regrets the Montenegrin authorities’ refusal to hold a referendum on the country’s accession to NATO, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Thursday.
Montenegro’s accession to NATO is in full swing, but no one asks the opinion of the Montenegrins," she said.
The diplomat noted that this country’s residents are in favor of holding such a referendum, as this is "an important step, which will not remain without consequences in the international arena."
On May 19, the foreign ministers of 28 NATO member-countries signed a protocol on Montenegro’s accession to NATO, after which it was granted an observer status. After the procedure of ratifying this document is over, the country will automatically become the alliance’s 29th member.
