During the cordial discussions the parties focused on the existing good bilateral relations, in the hope that they may be further consolidated. In particular, they highlighted the value of the harmonious inter-ethnic and inter-religious co-existence which characterizes the millennia-long Montenegrin identity.

Finally, there was an exchange of views on some themes of an international nature, with particular reference to the future of the European project, the current religious challenges and the phenomenon of migration.
