The Palace of Serbia hosted a ceremony to mark the occasion of Africa Day, which was attended by officials of the Government of Serbia and representatives of the diplomatic corps and cultural and public life.

“As the most prominent Yugoslav successor state when it comes to policies regarding Africa, Serbia has maintained friendly relations for decades – but as of this year, for the first time and officially, we decided to include the date of 25th May in the calendar of the most important dates in Serbia, and to move even closer to you in celebration – said Dačić.
