A farewell reception was organized in honour of departing Chinese Ambassador Chen Bo, attended by Serbian President Aleksandar Vučić and Prime Minister Ana Brnabić.
On this occasion, Vučić remarked that bidding farewell to sincere friends in Serbia is a bittersweet experience, filled with pride for the honour and opportunity of having such a friend.
“When we bid farewell to sincere friends in Serbia, we do so with a tinge of sadness, but also with pride, knowing the privilege and opportunity of having such a friend.
Ambassador Chen Bo means much more to us than a diplomatic representative of the People’s Republic of China, a country that holds the utmost respect of our citizens. She is, above all, our cherished friend.
We had planned many projects together, rejoiced in each kilometer of roads and railways, shared concerns during challenging times, listened to each other with attention and respect, and always relied on the support and collaborative stance of the great People’s Republic of China for everything Serbia and its citizens needed.
Even in the toughest times, Ambassador Chen Bo’s unwavering dedication to strengthening the comprehensive relations between China and Serbia bore her personal touch of genuine love and respect for our country and people.
Therefore, Serbia is her second home where she is no longer a guest but someone who will always be welcomed with joy, respect, and immense affection,” Vučić posted on his Instagram account “buducnostsrbijeav.”
