June 19, 2015

On June 19, U.S. Ambassador Margaret Anne Uyehara hosted an Iftar dinner for more than 60 people from different ethnic and religious backgrounds on the occasion of the Islamic holy month Ramadan at the Islamic Cultural Centre in Bar.

Ambassador stressed that Ramadan tells a story of shared universal values: peace and charity, the importance of family and community.

“Back home in the United Sates, American Muslims, joined by their friends and loved ones of other faiths and ways of life, will also be coming together this evening to share a meal and reaffirm these values that we hold in common.  Thank you to the guests tonight of all faiths.”

This is the eleventh Iftar dinner organized by U.S. Mission in Montenegro.  Similar events were organized in 2005, 2006, 2008 and 2010 in Podgorica; in 2007 in Pljevlja; in 2009 and 2011 in Ulcinj; in 2012 in Bijelo Polje, in 2013 in Tuzi and in 2014 in Bar.
