The route between Montenegro and Kosovo is unclear, a problem currently shared with E80 which is concurrent with E65 on this section. The existing magistral road that goes via Podgorica through the town of Bijelo Polje continues northwards through western Serbia as E763, away from the direction of Pristina. Instead the route needs to turn to the east some 5 km before Bijelo Polje (Ribarevina junction), and towards Priština. After that, at Rožaje, the route winds slightly northwards again, goes through western Serbia near Tutin, and then enters Kosovo near Kosovska Mitrovica.

Formerly, before 1985, this was the E 14.


^ Kosovo is the subject of a territorial dispute between the Republic of Kosovo and the Republic of Serbia. The Republic of Kosovo unilaterally declared independence on 17 February 2008, but Serbia continues to claim it as part of its own sovereign territory. The two governments began to normalise relations in 2013, as part of the 2013 Brussels Agreement. Kosovo has been recognized as an independent state by 112 out of 193 United Nations member states, while 12 states have recognized Kosovo only to later withdraw their recognition.
