Kosovo President Fatmir Sejdiu has announced that Kosovo will open an embassy in Podgorica in early 2009.
Sejdiu said on Monday (January 5th) that there is a mutual readiness for the establishment of diplomatic ties between Montenegro, reported Southeast European Times.
"We had direct talks on this with Montenegrin President Filip Vujanovic and Foreign Minister Milan Rocen, but the date on which this will happen is not known yet," Sejdiu said in an interview with the Podgorica-based daily Vijesti.
He added that Kosovo wants to have friendly relations with all its neighbours, including Serbia. Sejdiu said everyone who has ever lived in Kosovo has the right to return and promised that those willing to do so would receive the best possible treatment.
On Jan. 5, Vujanovic made the arrival of the first Kosovo ambassador to Podgorica conditional on the recognition of the Montenegrin minority in Kosovo and ensuring conditions for the return of the nonAlbanian population from Montenegro to Kosovo.
