Meeting with the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Turkey
President of the Republic of Serbia, Aleksandar Vučić, met today with the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Turkey, Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu, to discuss the improvement and further strengthening of bilateral and economic cooperation, as well as regional and international issues of importance.
President Vučić expressed satisfaction with the achieved level of bilateral relations featured by intensive political dialogue, deepened cooperation and mutual trust and respect. The interlocutors agreed that the exceptional personal and professional relationship between the two presidents significantly contributes to the development of political, economic and all other ties between Serbia and Turkey.
President Vučić particularly highlighted the personal contribution of President Erdoğan, which resulted in the arrival of numerous Turkish investors in Serbia, as well as the importance of the Joint Committee for Economic Cooperation, which strengthened ties between our two countries and can make an additional economic contribution. The interlocutors agreed that it is necessary to intensify the work of this Committee in the forthcoming period.
"Investments of Turkish companies in Serbia in the last two years are intensifying with the prospect of further growth, and in that sense, I welcome Turkey's growing interest in investing in the Serbian economy, as well as the implementation of a series of investments in underdeveloped parts of Serbia," said President Vučić, adding his hopes that this positive trend would continue, especially in terms of infrastructure.
Minister Çavuşoğlu conveyed President Erdoğan's greetings and invited President Vučić to visit Turkey so that a new session of the High Cooperation Council could be held.
The interlocutors agreed that there is much room in the relations between the two countries for the improvement of cooperation in the fields of energy, tourism, culture and education.
