"The aim of the idea of bringing these six countries together is to strenghten EU perspective. We want to reduce transaction expenses between businessmen and people among these six countries and to build better mechanisms to fight against organized crimes. They are the important targets that we need to fulfill," Luksic told Anadolu Agency (AA).
Montenegro foreign minister ruled out the claims of building a new Yugoslavia with the "G6" saying, "No one wants to build a new Yugoslavia."
"As you know Croatia and Albania have become members of NATO. Our target is also becoming a NATO member. It is very important to receive support from the NATO-member countries," he continued.

This future regional alliance would include Albania , Bosnia and Herzegovina , Montenegro , Kosovo, Macedonia and Serbia and would share a common parliament, police, a common labor market, education and health care system.
