Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic said on Monday that the trade exchange between his country and Slovenia rose from 571 million to 1.3 billion Euros in the last ten years, which indicates that the relations between two countries were significantly better, Beta news agency reported.
Borut Pahor, the President of Slovenia, is in Belgrade for two-day visit to discuss bilateral relations, the situation in the region and Serbia’s European path.
Speaking at a joint news conference in Belgrade with Pahor, Vucic said that unlike the first visit in 2014 when 50 companies and entrepreneurs accompanied Pahor, this time about 500 of them were expected at the two countries’ Economic Forum.
Pahor said his country was supporting Serbia’s ambition to join the European Union, adding there were different views on some issues between Ljubljana and Belgrade, but that his visit aimed at cementing the mutual trust and relations in all areas.
Asked about possible border correction between Kosovo and Serbia, Pahor responded he would not exclude such solution, but that “it must not cause collateral damage to other countries in the region.”
“I would not exclude that, but would be extremely cautious,” he said.
Pahor also said he does not think that Serbia was in any political crisis due to anti-government protests in the country, but that he would not interfere into domestic politics.
