Cotton joins others in Montenegro visit
U. S. Sen. Tom Cotton and at least five other senators visited Montenegro last week. The Balkan nation was once part of Yugoslavia and has an estimated population of 678,931. In June, it joined NATO, and Vice President Mike Pence visited there earlier this month.
According to the government of Montenegro, Cotton and the other U.S. senators met Friday with Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Justice Zoran Pazin, Foreign Minister Srdan Darmanovic and Defense Minister Predrag Boskovic.
Cotton is a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee and the Senate Intelligence Committee.
The Republican from Dardanelle was also scheduled to make other stops during the trip, including a visit to neighboring Albania, a spokesman said.
