Serbia and Montenegro

Serbia and Montenegro consists of a loose commonwealth in Europe, the successor state of the former Yugoslavia. Serbia and Montenegro, the remaining federal states of Yugoslavia, came to an agreement only to cooperate in some political fields (e.g. a defence union). The two states have the right to seek full independence three years after the acceptance of the new constitution, which occurred on February 4, 2003. The states will have their own economic policies and currencies. Serbia and Montenegro does not have a common capital any more. Institutions are divided between Belgrade and Podgorica. In 2006 a referendum will take place on the future of Serbia and Montenegro's further existence.
