Bilateral relations of Serbia, United States on the rise

Belgrade/Washington, 26 Feb 2015 – First Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Ivica Dacic, who is also Chairman of the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), met in Washington today with US Secretary of State John Kerry.

Dacic said at a joint press conference before the meeting that Serbia attaches great importance to bilateral relations with the United States, especially in times when it is chairing such an important international organisation as the OSCE.

As a chair country, we will be faithful and true to the principles on which the OSCE is based, since the former Yugoslavia was one of the founders, Dacic stated.

He said that the Serbian Chairmanship will make every effort to have good communication with the 57 OSCE member states on the area from Vladivostok to Vancouver and to coordinate its work with the most important political factors.

Dacic said that at the meeting with the US Secretary of State, they will not only discuss the work of the OSCE, but also bilateral relations between Serbia and the United States.

It is a great satisfaction for me that our bilateral relations in recent years have been moving upward. It is very important to restore the strategic partnership that the United States and Serbia had a long time ago, 100 years ago, Dacic underlined and recalled that our bilateral diplomatic relations were established more than 130 years ago.



Serbia’s First Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs, H.E. Ivica Dačić, will testify before the Helsinki Commission in his capacity as Chairman-in-Office of the OSCE. He takes the helm to conclude the implementation of a joint leadership plan developed with Switzerland, which chaired the OSCE in 2014.

Minister Dačić is expected to discuss the Serbian Chairmanship-in-Office’s priorities, including resolution of the conflict in and around Ukraine; reconciliation and cooperation in the Western Balkans; reforming security sector governance; combating transnational threats, including foreign terrorist fighters, terrorism, and cyber-security; safeguarding journalists; fostering freedom of expression, assembly, and association; combating organized crime and its linkages to human trafficking; combating corruption; and improving water governance. He will also provide insights regarding the ongoing work of the OSCE.
Serbia’s 2015 Chairmanship-in-Office of the 57-nation Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) comes at a pivotal point in European security. The OSCE, a regional security organization based known for its work in promoting democracy, human rights, and the rule of law, operates on the front lines of Russia-Ukraine conflict and seeks to counter backsliding on human rights in other countries of the OSCE region.  

Serbia expects support of US on its path towards Europe

Belgrade, 10 Feb 2015 – Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic spoke today with US Deputy Assistant Secretary for European and Eurasian Affairs Hoyt Yee and US Ambassador to Serbia Michael Kirby.

The American diplomats congratulated the Serbian Prime Minister on initialling the Judiciary Agreement yesterday in Brussels, and described it as a great success that confirms the dedication of the Serbian government to dialogue with Pristina.

PM Vucic underlined that it is his job to work the hardest and best for his people in Kosovo-Metohija and central Serbia.

The collocutors also examined the process of European integration, and Vucic said he expects the US support to Serbia's European path.

One of the topics discussed was the bilateral cooperation between Serbia and the United States, particularly in light of the meetings of the PM Vucic with US Vice President Joseph Biden and Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland during the Securiy Conference.
