Ladies and gentlemen, In late July last year, at a scientific convention dedicated to 155th anniversary of the birth of Duke Gavro Vuković, the originator of Montenegrin diplomacy and a long-standing Minister of foreign affairs of the Princedom of Montenegro, held here at his birth home, I announced that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, together with the UNDP office in Montenegro would design a summer school to be named after Gavro Vuković, intended for young diplomats from Southeast European countries. Today I have the honour, together with the head of the UNDP office, Mr Tankosić-Kelly, and the mayor of Berane, Mr Vuka Golubović, to officially open the school.

Indeed, we have a great respect for Minister Roćen's idea to organize the Summer School in the North. To effectively discuss regional diplomatic challenges we need to think about them clearly, and there is no better place to do it than here, in the homeland of famous Montenegrin diplomat.

There are so many things that the Duke Gavro Vuković did for development and affirmation of Montenegro as the foremost actor, or as one of the foremost actors of his time. We should keep in mind that he appeared on the social scene as a politician and a diplomat in the period when Montenegro was showing to the world that it does not only represent a military camp but also a state, and that Montenegrins are not only soldiers but citizens as well. Even then, late in 19th Century and early in 20th Century he understood international relations and their reflections on a small country like Montenegro.

'The Montenegro Summer School has made it clear that the new diplomatic strategy in this region is predicated on a sustained effort that will take some time to bear fruit. And, young diplomats of today - potential ministers and ambassadors of tomorrow have a significant role to play in building a democratic and prosperous region, integrated into the EU.'
