13. Oct 2021.
Today, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Serbia, Nikola Selaković, met with the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Eritrea, Osman Mohammed Saleh, who participated in the gathering marking the 60th anniversary of the first conference of the Non-Aligned Movement.

Minister Selaković assessed that there is plenty of space for strengthening the political dialogue at high and highest levels through the exchange of visits, as well as for the improvement of economic cooperation, reminding that next year our countries will mark ten years of diplomatic relations.

The head of Serbian diplomacy stated that trade, agriculture, agro-industry and defence industry are areas in which there is room for the cooperation development.

Also, according to him, the two countries have insufficiently developed legal and contractual foundations for cooperation, and we should work on that.

Minister Selaković thanked Eritrea for its support for the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Serbia on the issue of Kosovo and Metohija, as well as for the consistent support it provides our country in international organizations.

Emphasizing the potential for cooperation in the field of education and culture, Selaković called on young people from Eritrea to use the possibility of applying for the scholarship program in our country within the project “World in Serbia”, through which thousands of young people from friendly countries will be educated annually.
