Sweden invests in the Serbian Police reform

Serbian Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Interior Nebojša Stefanović and Swedish Ambassador to Serbia H.E. Jan Lundin signed agreements that will enable further strategic cooperation between the Serbian and Swedish police.

This is a Cooperation Agreement within the framework of the project “Reducing Risks in Serbia through Improved Co-ordination in Emergency Management”, the Agreement on Cooperation under the Program “Development of the Ministry of the Interior of the Republic of Serbia for the period 2019-2020” and the Agreement for the Implementation of the Program “Capacities of strategic management and European integration in the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Republic of Serbia”.

Serbia is a country that is clearly on the path to the European Union and the adoption of its values, and the reform of the Ministry of the Interior, based on Swedish models and cooperation, can bring great benefits, said the Deputy Prime Minister.

He expressed gratitude to the Kingdom of Sweden, the Swedish police and Ambassador Lundin not only on financial support but also on continued and dedicated cooperation.

”This is a Swedish investment in Serbia’s European future and therefore it is in Sweden’s interest to do so”, said ambassador Lundin.

Sweden strongly supports Serbia’s path toward EU, especially in key chapters 23 and 24. And today’s agreements are a step further in that direction, the ambassador said.
