After yesterday’s conversation with the head of French diplomacy, Jean-Yves Le Drian, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Serbia, Nikola Selaković, stated that the support of France is very important to Serbia, especially in the areas of European integration and economy.

At the joint press conference after the meeting in Paris, Selaković pointed out that the ties between the two countries have been additionally strengthened in the past period, thanks to the relations between Presidents Aleksandar Vučić and Emmanuel Macron.

According to Minister Selaković, a number of topics were discussed during the talks, such as deepening bilateral cooperation and economic relations, implementation of joint projects, France’s support for Serbia’s European integration process, Belgrade-Pristina dialogue and the situation in the Western Balkans.

“We are proud of our economic cooperation. In the previous period, Serbia attracted 80 per cent of French investments in our region, and that shows the very good cooperation we have with French companies,” Nikola Selaković pointed out.

According to him, the support of France in the process of the EU membership negotiations is very important for Serbia.

“I use this opportunity to thank you for your support and to invite you to Belgrade.  You should know that you are always welcome in Serbia,” Selaković told his French colleague.

Minister Le Drian expressed satisfaction with the first meeting with Minister Selaković, noting that relations between the two countries are deep.

The French Minister of Foreign Affairs pointed out that his country supports the European perspective of Serbia and the Western Balkans.

“Our political relations are guided by a strategic partnership and we have regular contacts at the highest level that reflect that,” Le Drian said.

He pointed out that he was very satisfied at the bilateral level with the dynamics of relations with Serbia and that he wanted that dynamics to intensify, on which the two ministries would work together.

“Relations between the EU and the Western Balkans will be an important element of the French EU presidency, and a few days ago, President Macron announced a conference on the Western Balkans in June 2022,” concluded Minister Le Drian.
