President Aleksandar Vucic told Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu that Serbia remains committed to promoting cooperation in all fields of mutual interest.
A press release from the President’s cabinet said that they discussed bilateral relations, regional issues and promoting economic cooperation with focus on investments, the energy industry and infrastructure projects. They also discussed an agreement which would allow Serbian and Turkish nationals to enter both countries with just their personal ID cards.
“We see Turkey as a strong partner and are very committed to developing and deepening overall relations. We have common economic interests and it’s important that Turkey has been helping the development of less developed parts of Serbia through large investments,” Vucic is quoted as saying. He added that he appreciates Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s personal contribution to bilateral cooperation and the arrival of Turkish investors.
“The construction and exploitation of the Turkish flow (gas pipeline) which supplies the region with natural gas is of exceptional significance for Serbia,” Vucic said.
He said that the peace and stability of the region are of key interest to Serbia adding that only intensive cooperation of all Western Balkan countries can bring prosperity and development.
The press release quoted Cavusoglu as saying that President Erdogan will visit Serbia and the region soon. He thanked Serbia for its support to Turkish investors. “You are doing an excellent job for your country and the region,” he said.
