“I think that I’m the first president to visit your country after your election as president. This is a great honor for me,” Vucic said.
He noted that the development of friendly relations with Azerbaijan is of great importance for Serbia.
“This is in the interests of our states and peoples. There is a great arena for our cooperation. For this reason, I have come to Azerbaijan with almost half of our government, because we intend to develop cooperation with Azerbaijan in all spheres," added the Serbian leader.
Vucic said Serbia is grateful to Azerbaijan for support to its independence and sovereignty.
Serbia, in turn, support the independence and sovereignty of Azerbaijan, the president added.
“These positions of the two countries will remain unchanged. Mr. President, we highly appreciate your policy. You are a personality that protects your country’s independence and strives for the welfare of citizens. Because, your country is located in a very complicated region, at the intersection of different regions, and you have made a good example of preserving your country. At the same time, the country’s economic interests are also ensured,” he said.
President Vucic emphasized that there is great potential for improving relations between the two countries.
The Serbian leader went on to say that the joint intergovernmental commission will hold another meeting in the near future.
“The last meeting took place in 2015. I think we can actively cooperate in the implementation of various transport projects,” President Vucic said, pointing to the successful activity of an Azerbaijani company in road construction in Serbia.
