Selaković: Visit to Slovenia a good sign for future cooperation

26. May 2021.
The Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Serbia, Nikola Selaković, stated today that his overall impression of the visit to friendly Slovenia was exceptional and that he had an excellent conversation with his Slovenian counterpart Logar and an impressive meeting with Slovenian President Pahor.

The head of Serbian diplomacy emphasized that one of the most important news is the agreement on mutual recognition of vaccination certificates, which essentially enables the freedom of movement for those who have undergone immunization.

"I believe that it will suit both Ljubljana and Belgrade, the two capitals, as well as other tourist destinations in our two friendly countries. I think that for the beginning of my cooperation with my Slovenian colleague, for our two ministries and two countries, this is a good sign of future cooperation", Selaković pointed out.

The Minister pointed out that this will be specified at the level of the two ministries and that he believes it will happen very soon.

Selaković reminded that Serbia already has a similar agreement with friendly and neighboring Hungary, Turkey and Greece, and that it represents a kind of recognition of the successful policy of vaccination and the fight against COVID-19.

Referring to the meeting with the mayor of Ljubljana, Zoran Janković, Selaković emphasized that he led the revival of that city and that his name will be written in golden letters in the history of that city as someone who achieved a lot.

"This makes me, as the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Serbia, even more proud, because he is originally from Serbia, from Smederevo in the Danube region. He does not forget his origin and is personally one of the strongest and greatest ties between Ljubljana and Belgrade, but also Serbia and Slovenia and the Serbian and Slovenian people", said Selaković.

During his official visit to Slovenia, Minister Selaković met with the President of that country, Borut Pahor, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Anže Logar, and the Mayor of Ljubljana, Zoran Janković.
