Following the signing of the fundamental agreement with the Serbian Orthodox Church (SPC) Montenegrin Prime Minister Dritan Abazovic said he was honored and pleased to have had the opportunity to sign this document and to close the issue in a very nice, appropriate and dignified manner, Beta reported.

Abazovic said the process took too long.

“The idea to sign the Fundamental Agreement with the SPC is an old one. I am sorry it was not realized earlier, however, this Government is determined to give identical rights to all religious communities,” said Abazovic, adding he believes that this sends a message of peace and tolerance and turns a new leaf.

Everything the Government does is guided by its desire to build a society of justice and equality „and to give others the right that we seek for ourselves,“ he said.

“I believe that we have put an end to the challenge, I am proud of that and I want to thank everyone who participated in the process, all the ministers and the people from the SPC,” said Abazovic, adding he believes they will always be prepared to stand up for a society of tolerance and reconciliation.
