President of the Republic of Serbia Aleksandar Vučić welcomed today at Nikola Tesla Airport French President Emmanuel Macron, who arrived on a two-day visit to our country.

Macron is visiting Serbia in the year that celebrates 180 years since the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries.

The presidents of Serbia and France then officially unveiled a plaque on the occasion of the official start of works on the modernisation of the Belgrade airport, which will be carried out by VINCI Airports.

Vučić said that the renewal of friendship between the two countries would not succeed without Macron’s perseverance, energy and the desire of France to return to this region.

He pointed out that the French-Serbian friendship will reach new borders, those that we once had and that we were dreaming of returning.

The President of Serbia pointed out that Serbs are loyal and serious people, respecting their allies, and France can count on Serbia as a reliable friend.

Macron pointed out that he came to Belgrade today to turn a new page, confirm friendship and build new partnerships with Serbia.

He recalled that it had been 18 years since a French President came to Serbia, which is too long.

“Our links to your country are very important,” Macron said, adding that during the visit, the shared past, but also the future, will be discussed.

The French President was ceremonially welcomed in front of the Palace of Serbia and was greeted by Prime Minister Ana Brnabić, members of the government, deputies, representatives of parliamentary parties, civil sector, prominent artists and winners of French decorations.
