Political relations

Bilateral relations between the Republic of Serbia and the Republic of Uganda are traditionally good and friendly. The memory of the role of the SFRY in the period of the anti-colonial struggle still represents one of the positive foundations on which the current relations between Uganda and Serbia are based. Former President of the Republic Tomislav Nikolić awarded President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni with the Order of the Republic of Serbia on the ribbon for merits in developing and strengthening peaceful cooperation and friendly relations between the Republic of Serbia and the Republic of Uganda. On 13 October 2019, within the 141st session of the Inter-Parliamentary Union, the President of the National Assembly of the Republic of Serbia, Maja Gojković, met with the Speaker of the House of Representatives of the Rwandan Parliament, Donatille Mukabalisa. At the invitation of the President of the Assembly of Uganda, the then President of the National Assembly of the Republic of Serbia Maja Gojković visited the Republic of Uganda from 22 to 24 February 2019.
