Before the September 26 talks in Tirana, Rumsfeld was in Montenegro, where the prime minister said the country was prepared to participate in the "U.S.-led coalition in fighting terrorism," but made no specific commitment.

Montenegro and Albania both see cooperation with U.S. military and security efforts as a step on the path to NATO membership.
