EU and Montenegro strengthen cooperation on counter-terrorism




The European Union and Montenegro have signed a renewed bilateral arrangement on the Joint Action Plan on Counter-Terrorism. The arrangement will be signed by Commissioner for Home Affairs, Ylva Johansson, and Minister of Interior of Montenegro, Danilo Šaranović. The arrangement aims at strengthening cooperation between Montenegro and the EU on counter-terrorism, as well as on countering and preventing violent extremism. Montenegro and the EU will work together on the removal of terrorist content online, terrorism financing, explosive precursors, critical entities resilience and supporting Montenegro to align to EU legislation on counter-terrorism. Furthermore, it aims at strengthening Montenegro's law enforcement capacity to deal with extremism and terrorism-related investigations. The EU will continue to support the implementation of the arrangement through the regional and bilateral programmes already in place. This is a further step in the implementation of the Joint Action Plan on Counter Terrorism agreed in 2018 with all partners in the Western Balkans.
