Thanking Brazil for its support in international organisations

06. May 2022.
Today, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Serbia Nikola Selaković met with the newly appointed Ambassador of Brazil to Serbia José Mauro da Fonseca Couto.

Minister Selaković stated that the bilateral relations were characterised by a high degree of understanding and support on the most important issues, adding that Serbia was committed to improving the overall relations with Brazil.

Minister Selaković pointed out the need for intensifying the political dialogue at a high and the highest level, and extended an invitation to Brazilian Minister of Foreign Affairs Carlos Alberto Franco França to visit Serbia. He also stressed the importance of regular dialogue between the two foreign ministries, expressing Serbia`s readiness to organise bilateral political consultations in Belgrade during this year.
Minister Selaković thanked Brazil for its principled position on the issue of Kosovo and Metohija, its commitment to consistent respect for international law and the full implementation of legally binding international documents. He highlighted the support Brazil was providing to Serbia in the UN, and how significant it was that at the recent UN Security Council session on UNMIK, the Brazilian delegation brought the achievement of peace and stability in the Serbian southern province in correlation with the full implementation of the UN Security Council Resolution 1244. He added that it was particularly important for Serbia that Brazil also appealed at the session for the full implementation of the Brussels Agreement.
Minister Selaković and his interlocutor discussed economic cooperation between Serbia and Brazil, which was currently significantly below its potential and did not follow the existing high level of political relations between the two countries.
