BELGRADE, Serbia (AA) - Montenegro on Saturday declared the Serbian envoy persona non grata.
The Foreign Ministry said in a statement that Vladimir Bozovic belittled the state which was hosting him.
"Yesterday, Ambassador Bozovic called the illegal and illegitimate Podgorica Assembly liberation and the free will of the #Montenegrin people, which once again, in the most direct way, belittled the state that gave him diplomatic hospitality," said the statement.
In November 2018, Montenegrin Parliament adopted a resolution annulling the decision of the Podgorica Assembly.
In a tit-for-tat response, Belgrade also declared Montenegrin Ambassador Tarzan Milosevic persona non grata giving him 72 hours to leave the country.
