The reception celebrating National Day of Belgium was for Ambassador Koen Adam and his wife Els last reception they hosted, before leaving Serbia. Ambassador Koen greeted friends and colleagues, and thank them and the Embassy team for the great support over all those years.

“It has been a tremendous journey, in a fascinating country, with friendly and hospitable people”, the Ambassador said. With reference to the current international situation he called for unity, quoting King Filip’s message to the Belgians: “We should answer these challenges with an unshakable faith in democracy, by promoting cohesion and inclusion, by not stirring up what might divide us. Serbia has to decide what is in its best interests, but from a Belgium perspective it is obvious that the destiny of Serbia lies in the EU”. Ambassador concluded “Els and I really regret to leave Serbia. We’ll miss you, and this beautiful location in the heart of Belgrade”.
