On 4 February 2003, the parliament of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia voted to disband itself, officially dissolving the country created the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes after the First World War and which became known as Yugoslavia in 1929.  The new country is now known as Serbia and Montenegro.

The country has dual capitals - Belgrade, the capital of Serbia, will serve as the primary capital while Podgorica, the capital of Montenegro will administer that republic. The two republics will create a new joint administration, including a parliament and a president.

The union also officially includes Kosovo within the territory of Serbia. Kosovo has been under international administration since 1999 and remains administered by NATO and the United Nations.
