The EU and Montenegro have held their first ministerial political dialogue meeting in Brussels on 23/02/2010, under the new Treaty of Lisbon rules, which has been in effect since 1 December 2009. The meeting was attended by Ángel Lossada Torres-Quevedo, Spanish Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs and Cooperation, representing Catherine Ashton, Vice-President of the EC and High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Milan Roćen, Montenegrin Minister for Foreign Affairs, and Michael Leigh, Director-General of the DG "Enlargement" of the EC. The latest events in the EU and Montenegro and their mutual relationship, were examined during the meeting, as well as the development of the situation in the Western Balkans. The meeting also dealt with the questionnaire on which the European Commission will base its opinion regarding Montenegro's accession application, and the future actions to be taken by the country. At the end of the meeting, the three participants reported on the issues discussed. They all agreed that significant progress has been made in 2009 in the reforms implemented by Montenegro, to meet European standards, but that there was still a way to go.
