Serbian Foreign Minister Ivica Dačić hosted a traditional reception on the premises of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs for representatives of the diplomatic corps, media representatives and personalities from Serbia’s cultural and public life.

Speaking on this occasion, Dačić said that Serbia’s goals in 2017 are to acquire new friends and not lose any of its old ones, to strengthen links and friendships, and to foster peace and stability in the region.

“We expect the accession process to intensify and for more chapters to be opened this year than was the case in 2016,” said Dačić, who noted that Serbia has also continued and intensified its cooperation with other partners, such as Russia, the United States, China, all EU Member States, neighbouring countries, the states of the African Union and countries of the Non-Aligned Movement.
