Meeting with Montenegro Ambassador to the EU, H.E Mr. Bojan Sarkic

October 30, 2020
Yesterday we at the EJA said au revoir to a dear friend and outstanding ambassador, His Excellency Mr Bojan Sarkic who will shortly be departing his post as Montenegro Ambassador to the EU.
Excellency Sarkic has been an instrumental figure in helping the Jewish community in Montenegro flourish, and has been an invaluable source of counsel, wisdom and help. His efforts culminated in the awarding of the EJA’s prestigious King David Award to President Dukanovic for making Montenegro such a welcoming home for Jews.
Excellency Sarkic has done much to bring the small country to the international stage, and brought a profound respect for the Balkan country through his steady hand, his ability to reach out across any political divide, and his open mind to dialogue.
We will miss him in Brussels but are certain that his legacy here, and the high regard in which His Excellency is held will propel him forwards to meet new challenges, opportunities and heights.
From all of us at the EJA. Thank you Mr Ambassador!
