28.07.2009

By the invitation of the President of Armenia Serzh Sargsyan, the President of the Republic of Serbia Boris Tadic arrived today to Armenia on a two-day official visit.

The official ceremony of welcoming the high guest took place at the Presidential Palace, and was followed by a private meeting of Presidents Serzh Sargsyan and Boris Tadic.

“Mr. President, I am greatly honored to welcomed you to Armenia. This is the first visit of the Serbian Head of state to our country and I am confident that it is inspired by the sincere desire to solidify the Armenian-Serbian historical and friendly relations by strong intergovernmental relations. Regrettably, up to now our relations were not too strong which reflects neither the historical realities, nor the existing possibilities. I believe that today the geopolitical situation not only provides an opportunity but also compels us to elevate our relations to a new level. I have invited you to Armenia with that very hope and I am confident that your visit will serve as a strong impetus for the development of our relations,” the President of Armenia said.

The private meeting of the two Presidents was followed by the meeting of the official delegations with the participation of Serzh Sargsyan and Boris Tadic.

President Sargsyan said that Armenia desires to establish closer relations with Serbia and is ready to work toward that end. As a first step Serzh Sargsyan proposed to invigorate spiritual and cultural relations, noting that it would serve a solid base for disclosing the possibilities for cooperation in different areas.

Boris Tadic welcomed President Sargsyan’s proposal and said that instructions to start works on that direction would be given to the corresponding structures and by the time of the Armenian President’s visit to Serbia the first results would already be there.

The two sides spoke also about possibilities for cooperation in the areas of transportation and economy. They noted that the economic component would bolster the development of the Armenian-Serbian relations.

Boris Tadic said that Serbia intends to open embassy in Armenia so that the Ambassador is able to contribute to the development of bilateral relations in Yerevan rather than from Athens.

The Presidents of Armenia and Serbia exchanged views on existing problems in the South Caucasus and Balkan regions and possibilities for their resolution. The parties concurred that the problems can and must be solved exclusively through peaceful negotiations and peace processes.
