On September 21, Ambassador Uyehara participated in a panel discussion on NATO organized by the GoM NATO Membership Council’s Communication Team and the Slovak Embassy in Podgorica. Ambassador Uyehara spoke about the importance of the NATO integration process for the future of Montenegro. “What is important in this process is community, a group of people who share common values. In the case of NATO, those values include: the rule of law, transparency in government, social and economic opportunities for all citizens and stability,“ the Ambassador said. “Everyone wants Montenegro to be a safe country, economically stable, with guaranteed rule of law. The United States shares these goals, because it wants to see Montenegro be independent, stable and prosperous. We believe that NATO membership will help Montenegro achieve these goals,” Ambassador Uyehara concluded.
