Head of Serbian diplomacy: Serbia attaches great importance to friendship with African countries
Minister Selakovic also touched on the coronavirus pandemic, noting that the example of unequal access to vaccines shows that there are still differences between countries
Serbian Foreign Minister Nikola Selakovic addressed, via video message, the closing ceremony of the Biennale of Luanda: Pan-African Forum for the Culture of Peace, stressing that our country has been nurturing friendly relations with the countries on the African continent since the founding of the Non-Aligned Movement.
Minister Selakovic expressed his satisfaction with the fact that by participating in the Biennale, Serbia has been given the opportunity to present its culture and heritage through virtual exhibitions.
Selakovic said that Serbia supports the activities and work of UNESCO, stressing that this is an international organization which has achieved exceptional results through joint efforts.
The minister also pointed out to the tendencies that threaten to slow down and compromise the work of UNESCO, such as politicization of cultural heritage and historical revisionism through educational policies, and said that this should not be allowed.
The head of Serbian diplomacy also referred to the challenge that the whole world is facing, and that is the coronavirus pandemic, noting that the example of unequal access to vaccines shows that there are still differences between countries.
"The Republic of Serbia strives to help its traditional friends in the fight against the pandemic, and in accordance with our capabilities we have selflessly donated vaccines to those who needed them the most," said Minister Selakovic and added that we will continue to nurture friendly relations with African countries, particularly through the student scholarship program "World in Serbia" because these are young factors of social transformation and bridges that connect.
