Montenegro's President Filip Vujanovic was quoted by the Bosnian press on Friday as saying that he is positive about an invitation for Montenegro to join NATO following the Zagreb Leaders' Summit Meeting of regional heads of state and U.S Vice President Joe Biden as special guest last Wednesday.
Vujanovic said in an interview with the Dnevni Avaz daily that it was extremely important that Biden had clearly presented arguments why the United States gave support to Montenegro's NATO membership bid.
The Montenegrin president said that on 1 December his country would be given "confirmation of its years-long efforts."
Podgorica has been expecting for some time an invitation to be sent from the alliance's conference of member-states' foreign ministers, scheduled for 1-2 December.
In the meantime, Russia has openly criticised Podgorica and warned the Montenegrin government against joining NATO.
