The Montenegrin government's decision on "economic citizenship" came into force on Tuesday, Montenegro-based website CdM is reporting.
An investor can get Montenegrin citizenship in several ways, including by making an EUR 100,000 payment to the account set up to finance "less developed local community unit."
First Deputy PM and Foreign Minister Ivica Dacic stated this, adding that it was also ridiculous to say that Montenegro was "not making anti-Serb decisions, but those its own interest."
"I suppose Djukanovic means Montenegrin interests, which is nice - because Serbia is also making decisions in its own interest," Dacic told Podgorica-based daily Dan.
Along with members of their families, this concerns about fifty citizens who work in that country.
The newspaper is reporting that under the guise of regulations on registration of residence, Podgorica is closing the door to Serbian citizens who, according to Montenegro's laws, do not fulfill the conditions to live and perform religious services there.
Fenerbahçe Beko Istanbul recorded its 10th consecutive victory by routing Buducnost Voli Podgorica 65-89 at Moraca late on Dec. 20 in the Montenegrin capital to continue its lead in the Euroleague.
The analysis of opportunities for the development of the bilateral cooperation was one of the main topics discussed on Tuesday by Prime Minister Viorica Dancila with Montenegro's Parliament President Ivan Brajovic who is paying an official visit to Bucharest.
