Podgorica, 25 July 2000 (RFE/RL) - Montenegrin President Milo Djukanovic is due to discuss deteriorating relations with Belgrade when he meets with the foreign ministers of Germany and France today. The president's office said Djukanovic will first meet German Foreign Minister Joschka Fisher in Berlin, and then travel to Paris for talks with French Foreign Minister Hubert Vedrine.
The visits come as tensions grow between Serbia and Montenegro, the two members of the Yugoslav federation. Yugoslavia's parliament yesterday adopted election laws that allow President Slobodan Milosevic to run for another eight-year term. Montenegro has said it may hold a referendum on independence if Milosevic wins another term. In Belgrade, Serbia's main opposition groups today will meet to discuss a strategy against Milosevic and decide whether to boycott elections expected in the fall.
