In a grand ceremony at the Palace of Serbia, the nation marked Africa Day, celebrating the rich and enduring bonds between Serbia and the African continent. The event was opened by the Moroccan Ambassador to Serbia, Mohamed Amin Belhaj, along with Serbia’s Foreign Minister Marko Đurić and National Assembly President Ana Brnabić.

Addressing the gathering, Minister Đurić expressed honour in speaking during the 61st anniversary of African unity, highlighting Serbia’s longstanding support for the African unity movement since its inception. “Serbia will intensify efforts to strengthen relations with our fraternal and friendly African nations. We share not only a common history with the African Union states but also a shared future of growth and development,” Đurić declared, inviting all African nations to participate in the “EXPO 2027” exhibition.

Minister Đurić emphasised Serbia’s pride in its friendship with African countries, a relationship that began during the Yugoslav era and continues robustly today.

President Brnabić underscored that 43 African nations, representing 80% of the continent, firmly support Serbia in upholding the fundamental principle of international law and the United Nations Charter: the inviolability of the territorial integrity of internationally recognised states.

Africa Day, celebrated on May 25th, commemorates the historic day when leaders of 32 independent African states signed the charter in Addis Ababa, creating the Organisation of African Unity, which evolved into the African Union. Since 2017, Serbia officially observes May 25th as a day of friendship with the peoples of Africa.

This celebration reaffirms Serbia’s commitment to fostering closer ties with African nations and highlights the mutual respect and collaboration that underpin their relationship.
