Montenegro: We’re too small to start a new world war

…US President Donald Trump suggested this week that this tiny Balkan country could be the crucible for a new global conflict.

Montenegro begs to differ.

“We have no intentions whatsoever to start World War III, we are too small for that,” the country’s foreign minister, Srdjan Darmanovic, told CNN in an exclusive interview. “It was fun to hear about it, actually like a good joke, but we are a very peaceful nation.”

…The newest NATO member was thrown into the spotlight when Trump described its people as “very aggressive.”

…Carlson questioned why the US should have to defend Montenegro, as required by Article 5 of the NATO treaty.

Trump responded: “I’ve asked the same question. Montenegro is a tiny country with very strong people. … They are very strong people. They are very aggressive people, they may get aggressive, and congratulations, you are in World War III.”

…Montenegro joined NATO in 2017. Its membership bid was opposed by Russia, which maintains close relationships with neighboring Serbia. The Montenegrin government accuses Moscow of orchestrating a coup as part of an effort to prevent it joining NATO.
