PRESS RELEASE 054
The Minister of Foreign Affairs, the European Union and Cooperation Visits Belgrade
13/03/2019

​The Minister of Foreign Affairs, the European Union and Cooperation, Josep Borrell, has travelled today to Belgrade as a response to the invitation from his Serbian counterpart, Ivica Dacic, within the framework of the excellent bilateral relations between Spain and Serbia.

During his visit, Minister Josep Borrell has had the opportunity to meet the Serbian President, Aleksandar Vucic; the Prime Minister, Ana Brnanic, and the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Ivica Dacic.

During these meetings, Josep Borrell has highlighted the excellent state of the bilateral relations, and both parties have addressed the possibilities to further boost the economic, commercial and cultural exchanges between the two countries.
    
This visit has also served to reaffirm Spain's commitment to peace and security in the Balkans. Spain firmly believes in dialogue as the best way to overcome the unresolved disputes that still affect the region, as reflected by the signature and development of the Prespa Agreement between Greece and North Macedonia.

Minister Josep Borrell has transmitted to the Serbian leaders Spain’s support to the European perspective regarding Serbia and the other states of the Western Balkan area. Achieving these goals requires a clear political will shared by political leaders and society as a whole in order to carry out the deep reforms required by the accession process.
     
During these meetings, Minister Josep Borrell has encouraged the Serbian authorities to make further progress on the accession process, persisting in the reforms and strengthening the State of Law, for which he has offered Spain's experience and technical support.
