“The ties that bind our two nations are far more significant than those that separate us,” said US Ambassador to Serbia, Christopher Hill, during the introduction of the Pupin Initiative.
This initiative is the first Serbian privately-funded nonprofit organisation based in both Belgrade and Washington, dedicated to comprehensively addressing Serbian-American relations through policy proposals, solutions, and strategies.
“In these times of cynicism, when many have lost faith, I applaud the young visionaries determined to make a difference. Both Serbia and my home country face challenges. However, our objective here isn’t to highlight issues but to explore collective solutions,” Hill remarked at the ceremony attended by Prime Minister Ana Brnabić.
Ambassador Hill emphasised that while we might act swiftly alone, together we can go further and achieve much more. Hill added that the US seeks Serbia as an ally.
“That doesn’t mean you can’t foster friendships worldwide. But by working together, we can tackle regional issues. A Europe with Serbia as a member of the European Union would be more robust, fortifying our transatlantic partnership,” Hill concluded.
