Finnish Ambassador to Serbia, H.E. Pertti Ikonen, commemorated the centenary of Finland’s independence – Suomi Finland 100 at his ambassadorial residence in Belgrade, using the opportunity to plant five birch trees, with the assistance of Serbian President Aleksandar Vučić. The celebration was also attended by other ambassadors of Nordic countries to Serbia – Swedish Ambassador H.E. Jan Lundin, Danish Ambassador H.E. Anders Christian Hougard and Norwegian Ambassador H.E. Arne Bjørnstad.
“This is an excellent opportunity to talk about the preservation of nature, as one of the basic values of our society. Finland and its Nordic friends are among the world’s leading countries when it comes to environmental protection. We want Serbia to join our team, and that’s the reason why we are today planting trees with President Vučić,” said Ambassador Ikonen.
