Senad Begic also said that the Institute of public health and the authorities of Montenegro are currently considering opening borders with the countries of the Balkan region.
At the press conference, journalists asked questions to S. Begich: why now citizens of Russia, and not Serbia, are allowed to enter Montenegro, given that the epidemiological situation in these two countries is similar, as well as how he will comment on the statement of the Ukrainian Consul that Ukrainian citizens are not allowed to enter Montenegro.
"Ukraine will be included in the updated list of countries whose residents will be allowed to enter Montenegro, due to the improvement of the epidemiological situation in the world. The Institute of public health has developed a methodology similar to that of the European Commission. The proposal to include Russia in the list of countries open for entry came from the Ministry of tourism of Montenegro. As for the countries of the Balkan region, we are seriously considering steps and conditions for opening their borders as soon as possible," Senad Begic said.
