Slovenian President receives Serbian Prime Minister
Ljubljana, 14.11.2012 | press release
The President of the Republic of Slovenia, Danilo Türk, received the Prime Minister of the Republic of Serbia, Ivica Dačić, who is paying an official visit to the Republic of Slovenia.
The two leaders assessed that the friendly ties between Slovenia and Serbia have a long history, and that relations between the two countries are solid and developing well, both in the political sphere as well as in economic and other areas. President Türk emphasised that Slovenia supports Serbia's efforts to join the European Union and will continue to do so.
The Slovenian President and the Serbian Prime Minster focused on economic ties, which have been strengthening; the two, however, still see ample opportunities to enhance cooperation, including within the framework of Serbian agreements with third countries, allowing enterprises duty-free access to third markets. This provides Slovenian enterprises good opportunities to cooperate with enterprises in Serbia and to expand their market reach.
President Türk and Prime Minister Dačić also touched upon the relations in the field of culture. The Slovenian President called for the strengthening of cultural cooperation, in particular with the highest achievements in culture and art. The two leaders agreed that future relations between Slovenia and Serbia were to be intensified and, in this context, the exchange of high-level visits would be of mutual benefit.
