Montenegro is interested in developing its relations with Kosovo on all levels, said a statement by the government.

The Montenegrin government's decision to open the embassy "confirms that good relations with neighbours and development of regional cooperation represent a lasting goal, stimulating progress in the countries of the region when it comes to EU and Euroatlantic integration and boosting stability in the region as a whole," the government said.

Montenegro recognized Kosovo as indeendent in October 2008, and ordered the Foreign Ministry to establish diplomatic relations in January 2010.

Kosovo's ethnic Albanians unilaterally declared independence in February 2008.

Serbia rejects the proclamation and considers Kosovo its southern province.
