On 28 June, Štefan Füle, European Commissioner for Enlargement and European Neighbourhood Policy, welcomed the recent decision of the General Affairs Council (taken on 26 June) to start accession negotiations with Montenegro on 29th June. Nevertheless, the Commission will continue to put a particular focus on the area of rule of law and fundamental rights, especially the fight against corruption and organised crime, so as to ensure a solid track record. Regarding those chapters the Members States established additional interim benchmarks which will allow to firmly anchor reforms in this area and ensure close monitoring of their implementation.
