At a June 11 ceremony at the President’s Residence, Tamara Mugosa, the newly appointed ambassador from Montenegro, walked the red carpet to meet President Shimon Peres and present her credentials. The national anthem of Montenegro, played by an IDF band, could be heard as Mugosa met a delegation from the Foreign Ministry in the entrance hall where the Chagall Windows are on display. Then Mugosa followed Peres into a reception room, where they discussed bilateral relations.

Mugosa is a non-resident ambassador, and will attend to her obligations from Montenegro. In her new capacity, she spoke of transforming a diplomatic dialogue with Israel into diverse areas of cooperation.
