Assembly Speaker Dacic: Slovakia is one of the most important and biggest friends of Serbia
As an EU member that does not recognize so-called Kosovo, Slovakia is our great ally in the efforts to conduct dialogue on this, the most important state issue for us, and seek a compromise solution that will bring peace and stability and prosperity to the Balkans in the long run - said the president of the Assembly
Serbia sees Slovakia as one of its most important and biggest friends and partners, and Slovakia also sees Serbia as a key partner in the Balkans, Assembly President Ivica Dacic said today, while declaring open the international scientific conference "Serbian-Slovak Relations."
Dacic recalled that Serbia and Slovakia have a hundred-year tradition of interstate relations, since the time when they were part of larger state alliances.
He stressed that there were have been no conflicts between the two countries during that historical period, but only examples of cooperation and mutual support, as well as that few peoples have such historical closeness and common past.
According to him, now as the president of the Assembly, and previously as the prime minister and minister of interior and of foreign affairs, he has had meetings with Slovak representatives as with most sincere friends with whom he could share both satisfaction and concern, but also expects support.
Dacic stressed that Serbia owes a debt of gratitude to Slovakia for its principled position not to recognize Kosovo as independent, which in practice shows its commitment to preserving our sovereignty, but also its commitment to respecting international law.
"As an EU member that does not recognize so-called Kosovo, Slovakia is our great ally in the efforts to conduct dialogue on this, the most important state issue for us, and seek a compromise solution that will bring peace and stability and prosperity to the Balkans in the long run," said Dacic.
According to him, that is the only path, and Slovakia is actively participating in that as a member of the EU and NATO.
The event, which was organized by the Institute for National and International Security and other institutions, gathered experts and scientists from the two countries, who were also greeted by Slovak Ambassador Fedor Rosocha.
