The domain of foreign and security policy and defence includes key strategic orientations of Montenegro’s geostrategic and geopolitical position since restoration of its independence in 2006, including the cornerstones of its foreign policy – European Union accession, further integration into NATO, and reinforcing regional cooperation, in compliance with its security policy and defence principles pursued as a fully-fledged NATO ally as of 2017. Being a NATO ally increases Montenegro’s geostrategic significance and guides its long-standing foreign policy aspiration of accession to the European Union.
The policies under this domain aim at further strengthening of Montenegro’s international position through intensive diplomatic activity, particularly in reference to the European Union and NATO, given the complementarity and synergies between the EU common foreign and security policy that Montenegro aligns its foreign policy positions with, and further integration into NATO, through partaking to the collective security system, which is a key assumption for protecting Montenegro against the threats to its national security, but also for improving the security environment in the region and reinforcing its defence capabilities to face modern security challenges.
