Mike Pence praises Montenegro for 'courage' in 'face of Russian pressure'


U.S. Vice President Mike Pence praised Montenegrin leaders on August 1 for standing up to "Russian pressure" on his final stop of an Eastern European tour aimed at reassuring U.S. allies in the region, RFERL reported.

 

Pence arrived in the tiny Balkan nation, NATO's newest member, after a visit to Georgia, where he slammed Russia's "occupation" of the Caucasus nation's territory.

 

At a dinner with Montenegrin President Filip Vujanovic, Prime Minister Dusko Markovic, and other Montenegrin political leaders, Pence said his trip to the nation of 620,000 is "testament to the fact that America has no small allies -- only strong allies."

 

"Your courage, particularly in the face of Russian pressure, inspires the world, and I commend you for it," he said.
