We were the first party that put European integration of
Montenegro into focus of the state’s top priority by proposing the Declaration
on EU accession to the Montenegrin Parliament, and now we are the first to say
that the integration itself is not the ultimate goal, but a means to change the
value system, establish and achieve new standards and a modern society based on
work and knowledge.
We believe that Montenegro should be at the forefront of reforms, to initiate
and establish new forms of regional association that is working to meet the
criteria for full EU membership. Not only the government, state institutions and
political parties should be in charge of European integration, it is a
continuous and coordinated activity of the whole society and all of its
stakeholders. We stand for a transparent, measurable and responsible attitude
towards international integration, for the declaration of citizens in referendum
on accession to NATO and our military involvement in international peace
enforcement missions, which are not in accordance with UN mandate.
In relation to these issues SNP CG will respect the will of the majority of its
members and supporters still sticking to the belief that the Partnership for
Peace is optimal framework of Montenegro's participation in regional and
international security systems. We want a broad and open social debate of the
advantages and disadvantages of security and other integration.
International integration has to be faster and of a better quality, and the role
and importance that Montenegro enjoys in international forums must be increased.
Professional, depoliticized, responsible and professional diplomatic and
consular service is of great importance for the integration process and we are
strongly committed to strengthening thereof. The process of integration and
strengthening the international position of Montenegro is dynamic and requires a
continuous learning, reviewing and amending legislation and behavior patterns.
SNP CG has the knowledge and is ready to continuously improve it, but also to
put all of its human and professional capacities at the disposal of the society
in order to achieve one of our program goals in timely manner, which is
Montenegro as a full member of the big European family.
SNP CG will give its full contribution to integration also in the manner that we
will intensify our activities to become a member of the Socialist International,
and our Youth Association member of the Socialist Youth International. Thus, we
will put our future membership, political and party ties and international
political support into a function of strengthening the international position of
