Meeting with the Ambassador of Palestine
President of the Republic of Serbia Aleksandar Vučić met earlier today with the Palestinian Ambassador Mohammed Nabhan and informed him about the talks the Serbian delegation had in Washington and Brussels.
President Vučić told Ambassador Nabhan that Serbia respects and preserves friendship with Palestine and the Palestinian people and that it supports the establishment of lasting peace and stability in the Middle East. He pointed out that he hopes the two sides will find a way to reach an agreement in the future that will contribute to a better life for all people in the region.
"Serbia is committed to improving relations with both Israel and Palestine and strives towards a sustainable solution based on international public law norms established at the UN, which would bring peace, stability and progress to all," said President Vučić.
President Vučić thanked the Palestinian leadership for its political support to the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Serbia and its principled position on non-recognition of the unilaterally declared independence of so-called Kosovo.
Ambassador Nabhan said that Palestine esteems Serbia, with which it has deep friendly relations, and that is why the news of a possible relocation of the embassy was received with concern. Ambassador Nabhan also expressed confidence that the views of the Palestinian people would be respected by the Serbian leadership in the spirit of traditional friendship.
The two interlocutors agreed that Serbia and Palestine should continue with the steps to form a Joint Cooperation Committee that would concretize the existing agreements and help make better use of opportunities for extensive cooperation.
Ambassador Nabhan briefed President Vučić about the Palestinian view of the situation in the Middle East.
