Prime Minister Ana Brnabic spoke today with a delegation of parliamentarians from India, led by Speaker of the House of Commons of India, Om Birla. She noted that the political relations between the two countries are traditionally friendly, without open issues.
The Prime Minister thanked Birla for India’s firm stance on non-recognition of Kosovo’s unilaterally declared independence and unambiguous support for Serbia’s territorial integrity and sovereignty.
She stressed that India is a great partner and associate of Serbia and that she is pleased that relations between the two countries are getting better over time.
The Prime Minister thanked the people of India for the kindness and generosity they show at every turn in their contact with the people of our country.
The two officials noted that economic cooperation does not match the quality of political relations and that it can be significantly improved in the future.
In that light, Brnabic said that our country is fully open to investments from India and that a special focus in the coming period will be on strengthening cooperation in the field of agriculture.
She recalled that the cultural cooperation between the two countries has traditionally been at a high level, and expressed her hope that our country will attract even more Indian film producers who could realise their projects in Serbia.
The Speaker of the House of Commons of India invited Brnabic to visit that country soon.
