Nicosia, Jun 16 (CNA) - Cyprus has recognised de jure Montenegro's independence, with a letter sent today by Cypriot Minister of Foreign Affairs George Lillikas to his Montenegrin counterpart Miodrag Vlahovic.

In his letter, Lillikas says that the Republic of Cyprus has recognised Montenegro as an independent state after the official declaration of independence by the parliament of the country on 3 June 2006.

''This development reflects the result of the referendum of 21 May 2006, which expresses the will of the people of Montenegro for an independent state, which came about according to the establishment act of the State Union of Serbia and Montenegro,'' he adds.
