PRESS RELEASE 127
Meeting Between the Spanish Minister of Foreign Affairs, the European Union and Cooperation and the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Serbia
26/10/2018

On the margins of the Mediterranean Conference of the Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE), which is taking place in Malaga, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, the European Union and Cooperation held a meeting with the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs of Serbia, Ivica Dacic.

Both ministers coincided in highlighting the excellent state of bilateral relations, as well as the need to deepen these in other fields, particularly with regard to the economy and trade, where there is a lot of room for growth.

With regards to Europe, Josep Borrell informed Ivica Dacic that Spain will continue to support Serbia’s candidacy to the EU, and he encouraged his counterpart to focus on the path of reform.

Both ministers reviewed the contentious issue of the status of the territory of Kosovo, regarding which Minister Borrell transmitted the Spanish Government’s utmost support and our conviction that only the direct dialogue between Belgrade and Pristina, under the auspices of the EU, can provide a lasting solution.

Finally, both ministers congratulated each other on the opening of the new Serbian Honorary Consulate in Seville.
