Use the potentials to improve cooperation with Belarus

13. Oct 2021.
Today, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Serbia, Nikola Selaković, met with the Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of Belarus, Sergei Aleinik.

Selaković stated that the relations between the two countries are based on sincere traditional friendship, cultural, historical and religious closeness, and that bilateral cooperation is successfully developing, but also that there are numerous areas where not all potentials have been used.

The Minister stated that our interest is to hold regular meetings at high and highest levels. The interlocutors also agreed to intensify cooperation between the two ministries and hold political consultations by the end of the year.

Selaković thanked Belarus for its firm and fraternal support and the policy of non-recognition of the unilaterally declared independence of the so-called Kosovo, as well as opposition to Pristina's membership in international organizations.

Speaking about economic cooperation, Selaković stated that it is not at the expected level and that it should follow excellent political relations, as well as that joint engagement is needed in order to increase the volume of trade.
