(Podgorica, DTT-NET.COM)- Iceland is the first country which has recognised the new state of Montenegro.

“On behalf of the Government of Iceland I have the honour to communicate to you the recognition by Iceland of the republic of Montenegro as a sovereign and independent State” Iceland’s foreign minister H.E. Mr. Geir H. Haarde, wrote in a letter send to his Montenegrin counterpart Miodrag Vlahovic on Thursday.

“Iceland is ready to establish formal diplomatic relations between our two countries at the earliest opportunity” reads the letter.
