The Western Balkan continue to remain an arena in which conflicting and geostrategic interests of various international actors’ clash.

This was one of the important declarations made by Montenegrin President Milo Djukanovic in his address at the general debate of the 76th Session of the General Assembly of the United Nations.

Djukanovic warned that the region risks destabilization, as the European perspective is waning, and trust in European values is being undermined.

“Challenges and threats to multiethnic democracy in the Balkans have not dwindled. The Western Balkans is yet again a battlefield for conflicting geopolitical interests, the consequence of which is slowing down the integration of the Western Balkans societies to their naturally European setting”, said Djukanovic.

According to the Montenegrin President, the development of the region has been stalling, while there are many gaps that are being filled with “destructive theories” according to which the region cannot be multiethnic, especially in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

He said that these theories are being used as an alibi in reopening nationalistic projects that led to the battles fought in the 90s, and reaffirmed Montenegro’s commitment in opposing these dangerous ideas.
