Montenegro should become part of NATO at the next summit of the alliance, Polish Foreign Minister Grzegorz Schetyna said during his visit to Podgorica, the capital of Montenegro.

Schetyna came to Podgorica to participate in talks on Montenegro’s admission to NATO.

"Our dream is that Montenegro would be the 29th full-fledged NATO member at the Warsaw summit in July 2016," he was quoted as saying by Polish Press Agency.

The chances of Montenegro joining NATO during the Warsaw summit are high, he underscored.

According to the minister, Montenegro’s admission to NATO would help stabilize the situation in the Western Balkans and be a step towards the country’s future EU membership.

He added that Poland plans to encourage other NATO members to support Montenegro membership plans.

Earlier, NATO Chief Jens Stoltenberg said the decision on Montenegro’s membership bid would be made during a foreign ministerial meeting scheduled in December.
