Press Release

Congressman Mike Turner (OH-10), Chairman of the US Delegation to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) Parliamentary Assembly, received an award today from Montenegro, as did former Vice President Joe Biden and Senator John McCain, in recognition of his work in strengthening the partnership between the United States and Montenegro.

“I am deeply honored to receive this award, especially alongside Joe Biden and John McCain,” said Congressman Turner. “I fought hard on Capitol Hill to get my colleagues’ support in adding Montenegro to the NATO alliance. This would not have been possible without Joe or John’s leadership as well. Having Montenegro as a democratic ally is greatly important as NATO continues to combat Russian aggression, especially in the Balkan region. I would like to thank Montenegro for their partnership and look forward to continuing our countries’ bilateral and the alliance’s multilateral relations.”
