Commissioner Füle congratulates Montenegro for securing candidate status

"We hope that today's decision will give new impetus to the country's EU-related reforms, especially with respect to the key priorities identified by the Commission as instrumental to preparing the country for the opening of its accession negotiations with the EU", said Commissioner Füle on 17 December.

I welcome today's decision of the European Council to grant Montenegro the status of candidate country, as recommended by the Commission in its Opinion of 9 November 2010.

This reflects the recognition by the EU of the progress made by Montenegro in its preparation for future EU membership. It is a powerful demonstration of the credibility of our enlargement policy, which delivers results in Brussels when reforms take place at home – i.e. in Montenegro.
We hope that today's decision will give new impetus to the country's EU-related reforms, especially with respect to the key priorities identified by the Commission as instrumental to preparing the country for the opening of its accession negotiations with the EU."
