Serbia President plans to visit Belarus; exact date is yet to be determined

MINSK, 21 July (BelTA) – The Serbian President plans to travel to Belarus on a return visit, but the exact date is yet to be determined, Serbia’s First Vice Premier, Minister of Foreign Affairs Ivica Dacic told media, BelTA has learned.

"I cannot say the exact date. But the visit will be carried out. Our Presidents have a very good relationship. But due to busy schedules of the heads of state the specific date is yet to be determined," said Ivica Dacic.

For his part, Belarus’ Minister of Foreign Affairs Vladimir Makei stressed that Serbia is a key partner of Belarus in the Balkans. It is the only country from among the non-CIS countries with whom Belarus has a free trade agreement. “The free trade agreement was signed in 2009. Since then the trade between our countries has soared five times. Despite a difficult economic situation and a drop in trade with some countries, Belarus has registered a 35% increase in the trade with Serbia this year. It speaks for itself,” the minister said.

In his words, it is not just trade. It means we are implementing serious projects, including in the industrial sector. A number of new projects are in the pipeline. “I am confident that our bilateral trade and economic cooperation has big future, and we will be able to reach $500 million in trade, the target set by our Presidents,” Vladimir Makei said.

He also added that during the talks with Ivica Dacic in Minsk the parties agreed to intensify the bilateral all-round cooperation.

As was earlier informed, in June 2014 Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko paid an official visit to Serbia. The parties signed a package of documents to expand the cooperation in various areas.
