The two sides made the pledge during talks between visiting Montenegrin Prime Minister Zdravko Krivokapic and Zoran Tegeltija, chairman of BiH's Council of Ministers.

"We agreed on two priorities today. The first one is to improve the road connection via Scepan Polje border crossing, which is in a bad shape," said Krivokapic.

The second priority is to improve cross-border flow of people, goods, and capital between the two countries, he said, inviting BiH citizens to spend holidays in Montenegro and promising a warm welcome.

BiH is dedicated to repairing the 25-km-long bumpy road between Foca, some 80 km southeast to Sarajevo, and Scepan Polje border crossing, within the next two or three years, said Tegeltija.

The two countries also agreed to lift the toll on the expressway between Trebinje, a border town some 200 km south of Sarajevo, and Montenegrin city Niksic, he said.

The two sides also discussed the European Union integrations and the COVID-19 pandemic.
