On Wednesday 8 May at the Italian Embassy in Podgorica (Montenegro) a meeting took place, which involved Alessandro Perelli, the Vice President of ALDA, Kerim Medjedovic, delegate of the LDA in Niksic, the new Italian Ambassador in Montenegro Eugenio Del Monaco and the Counsellor of the Embassy, Michele Mistò.

During the meeting, Mr Perelli illustrated the cooperation projects between Friuli Venezia Giulia and several organisations from Montenegro, which feature Niksic LDA as a partner and Friuli Venezia Giulia as Lead partner. In particular, the discussion covered the project initiatives regarding European certification of forests in the Rozaje area, and the exchange of experiences in the psychiatric sector between the ‘scuola basagliana’ from Trieste and the psychiatric hospital in Kotor (Cattaro). Kerim Medjedovic stressed the role of the LDA in Niksic to support the process of access of Montenegro to the European Union.

The Ambassador Del Monaco highlighted the importance of ALDA’s action in the field of the promotion of democracy rights, in the defence of minorities and equal opportunities, topics which will be developed and promoted in the young Republic of Montenegro during its progressive approach to European regulations.
