U.S. Senator and Chairman of the Judiciary Committee Lindsey Graham headed a Congressional Delegation to Montenegro September 3-5. Senator Sheldon Whitehouse, a Ranking Member of the Judiciary Committee, and Senator John Barrasso, the Chairman of the Environment and Public Works Committee, accompanied Senator Graham, as did Representative William Timmons, who serves on the Budget and Education and Labor Committees, and Representative Jeff Duncan, who serves on the Energy and Commerce Committee.
Cindy McCain also joined the Congressional Delegation. A noted humanitarian and philanthropist herself, Mrs. McCain’s late husband, Senator John McCain, will long be remembered for his support for the Euro-Atlantic integration of the Balkans.
At the start of the visit, the delegation met with President Milo Đukanović.
The Congressional Delegation continued their visit by meeting the Speaker of Parliament, Ivan Brajovic.
The delegation also called on Prime Minister Duško Marković.
During their visit to Montenegro, the Congressional Delegation took an aerial tour of Montenegro’s economic and infrastructure development projects in the North before departing for Croatia.
