The 'Let's See How It Goes' strategy, I would call it. Montenegro is small. It had to play a pragmatic game. Nobody knew at first how the Yugoslav War was actually going to turn out, eventually. What if Serbia had somehow eventually managed to crush both Croatia & Bosnia-Herzegovina. It would have made an awkward scenario for Montenegro, having had then to climb down & backtrack from a hasty secession declaration. Even Macedonia Skopje took their time well enough before making the final call.
