Mirziyoyev congratulates President of Montenegro on Statehood Day

On July 13, President of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev sent greetings to the President of Montenegro Milo Đukanović on the national holiday – Statehood Day, the presidential press service reported.

Statehood Day is a holiday that occurs every year on 13 July in Montenegro to commemorate the day in 1878 on which the Berlin Congress recognized Montenegro as the twenty-seventh independent state in the world.

Statehood Day is not to be confused with Montenegro's Independence Day, which is held each year on 21 May in honor of the 2006 plebiscite that indicated that 55.5% of Montenegrins were in favor of becoming a sovereign nation.

For information, Uzbekistan established diplomatic relations with Montenegro on December 19, 2006 through exchange of notes.
