59. Letter from President Bush to President Vujanovic re establishing diplomatic relations with the Republic of Montenegro (August 15, 2006)


The Honorable

Filip Vujanovic


Republic of Montenegro

Dear Mr. President:

In the past few months, historic changes have taken place in Montenegro. On behalf of the American people, I congratulate you on successfully organizing and conducting Montenegro’s referendum on independence, and on Montenegro’s emergence as a sovereign and independent state.

I am pleased to propose that our two countries establish diplomatic relations on the basis of the assurances and understandings outlined in the June 4 letter from Foreign Minister Vlahovic to Secretary Rice. If your government agrees, the United States would welcome the establishment by Montenegro of diplomatic representation in the United States and will plan to do likewise in Montenegro.

I look forward to your response and to the continued development of cordial and productive relations between Montenegro and the United States of America.


George W. Bush
