The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Serbia, in cooperation with the State Archives of Serbia, marked 105 years since the establishment of diplomatic relations between the Kingdom of Serbia and the Kingdom of Denmark, the Government announced.
Opening the ceremony at the State Archives of Serbia, Minister Nikola Selaković reminded that diplomatic relations between the two countries were established during the First World War. He said the presence of some of the most important Danish companies confirms that Denmark is part of Serbia’s economic revival.
He expressed his belief that bilateral relations, both on the political and economic level, will further progress in the future because, as he said, “we have the foundations on which we can build a magnificent building.”
The Ambassador of Denmark to Serbia H.E. Susanne Shine stated that the two countries have good bilateral relations and expressed the hope that Serbia will continue on the path of reforms, and join the EU family.
Ambassador Shine reminded that it was during the Danish presidency of the EU in 2012 that Serbia became a candidate for EU membership, underlining that the country continues to support Serbia on its European path.
She expressed the hope that more Danish companies will invest in Serbia in the future and that the partnership between the two countries will continue to expand.
As part of the ceremony, a jubilee postage stamp produced by “Pošta Srbije” was presented, and the memorial collection of Pavle Beljanski from Novi Sad was presented with paintings with the cultural property of professor Jefta Perić, which until recently were in a private collection in Denmark.
The ceremony ended with the promotion of the collection of documents “The Kingdom of Serbia and the Kingdom of Denmark” published by the State Archives of Serbia, followed by the exhibition.
