Japan is represented in Montenegro through a non-resident ambassador based in Belgrade. It is "the policy of the Government of Japan to attach importance to the peace and stability of Western Balkans countries including Montenegro".
Montenegro was an ally of Russia in the Russo-Japanese war, declaring war on Japan in 1904. Volunteers from Montenegro were sent to fight in the Russian Army in Manchuria. In the peace treaty following the war, Montenegro was excluded from the treaty and a state of war continued to exist between the two countries.
