I wish to extend to you a cordial greeting. Welcome to Berane, welcome to Montenegro. I have the privilege of opening - in this temple of Montenegrin diplomacy, home of its establisher duke Gavro Vuković, long- term minister of foreign affairs of the Principality of Montenegro - the Second Montenegrin School for Young Diplomats that carries his name, for the young diplomats from the region and EU countries. The School is organized by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the new young Montenegrin state, in respect to this Montenegrin outstanding person. I believe that these are beginnings of a new, long, good tradition and at the same time one more proof of the commitment of modern Montenegro to strengthening the policy of friendly relations and regional cooperation among the countries.
