Serbia will always be sincere friend and reliable partner to Germany: Vucic congratulates Unity Day
"We seek stability in the Western Balkans because it is a prerequisite of any progress of the region, and above all of the economic development of Serbia," stated Vucic
Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic has sent a message to German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier and Chancellor Angela Merkel, congratulating them on German Unity Day, where he said that Serbia would always be a sincere and reliable partner, and assessed relations between the two countries to be at their highest level in history.
"I extend sincere congratulations on the German Unity Day with the best wishes for the progress of your country and the well-being of its citizens," Vucic wrote.
He said he was convinced that the German state, which through bold decisions and wise solutions of its leaders always knew how to overcome major challenges, would continue with a series of successes, on which the prosperity of the European Union, in which Serbia wants to gain a place, is also founded.
He stressed that Serbia will always be a sincere friend and reliable partner to Germany, both through its efforts to implement European values, become an orderly and prosperous country and earn the membership in the European Union, and through its commitment to maintain stability in the region by upholding the policy of peace and cooperation which the Berlin Process considerably supports.
"We seek stability in the Western Balkans because it is a prerequisite of any progress of the region, and above all of the economic development of Serbia," Vucic stated.
He stressed that the development of the Serbian economy is largely based on German investments and sound business operations of German companies which employ about 60,000 workers.
" I believe that the strong momentum of our economic cooperation is also the result of Serbia's greater reputation in Germany, as well as of the mutual trust that makes our bilateral relations the highest in history," Vucic stated.
He recalled that the great German author Goethe admired the characters in Serbian epic literature, who, as he had said, deserve respect "for their faithfulness to themselves and their faith in the ideas and legacy of their ancestors."
"Today's Serbia is also true to the ideas - the ideas of peace, stability, cooperation, economic prosperity and progress on the European path, and you can always rely on our commitment to their realization. With warm regards and a sincere desire to welcome you in Serbia, please accept the assurances of our highest consideration," President Vucic's message of congratulations said.
