Austrian National Day Celebrated

Austrian Ambassador to Serbia, H.E. Johannes Eigner, hosted a reception to celebrate Austrian National Day on 26th October – the very date when, in 1955, the country committed itself to permanent neutrality with the signing of its Declaration of Neutrality, allowing for the departure of allied forces and the restoration of the country’s full sovereignty.

Speaking at the reception, Ambassador Eigner said that “the EU will still survive after Brexit and we will have a Union with Serbia as a member”.

The City Hall reception was attended by representatives of the diplomatic corps in Serbia, military attachés of numerous countries, representatives of the economic, cultural and public life of Serbia, but also individual representatives of the Serb community in Austria.
