Dacic: EU Strategy for a Adriatic and Ionian Region encourages team-work and investment for a advantage of all holding partial in it.

Catania 2018Statement by First Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs of a Republic of Serbia Ivica Dacic during a Adriatic and Ionian Council /EUSAIR Ministerial Meeting hold in Catania, Italy:

Mr. Secretary General,
Fellow Ministers,
Ladies and gentlemen,

It gives me good pleasure that we have collected now in Catania and to have a event to take batch of a corner activities over a past year in a Adriatic and Ionian region.

I would like to appreciate a Italian Republic for providing comforts for a stream AIC assembly in an extended format along with EUSAIR Ministers, reaffirming once again that a Strategy is an fit synergy resource enabling even some-more suggestive team-work among EU Member States, EU Candidate and Potential Candidate Countries.

The Republic of Serbia expects that a loyal achievements of a informal team-work be done manifest and available, overdue to macro-regional EU Strategies for a Danube Region and a Adriatic and Ionian Region, to all adults in a region. In that respect, we are now prepared to concentration some-more courtesy on specific projects to be implemented by a Action Plan of a EU Strategy for a Adriatic and Ionian Region.

The Report of a European Commission on a doing of macro-regional strategies expelled in Dec 2016, a 2017 Opinion of a European Committee of a Regions and a latest European Parliament fortitude adopted this year have mostly identified evident challenges.

Priorities set for ride and appetite sectors need to be concurrent with a initiatives launched in other fora (“the Berlin Process”, “the Visegrad Group”, Energy Community, etc.) so that they be seen as interrelated rather than as nonessential duplication and overlapping.

I would like to indicate to really poignant stairs taken given a final AIC Ministerial Meeting, stairs that valid a potency of tighten team-work indication between a participating States and a European Commission towards effective doing of a EU Strategy for a Adriatic and Ionian Region:

• A new turn of EUSAIR Thematic Steering Groups in 2017 and a initial half of 2018 has been finished successfully, so fulfilling a expectations of a European Commission and all EUSAIR stakeholders in terms of substantiating organic government structures within a Strategy;

• Within ADRION transnational program, 34 projects were agreed, while partners from Serbia are holding partial in 13 of them. This non-stop adult a probability for a States participating in a Strategy to clearly transparent ideas by projects of aptitude to a expansion of sold States and of a segment as a whole.

We are assured that a EU Strategy for a Adriatic and Ionian Region will start enlivening team-work and investment to a advantage of all holding partial in it, while creation a full grant to assent and confidence in a whole region.

I would now like to prominence some certain formula achieved by a Republic of Serbia in a before year. With a projected expansion of over 4 per cent, my nation has available a third uninterrupted surplus, while open debt has been reduced to reduction than 58 per cent which, let me recall, was a requirement set out in a Maastricht Treaty. Unemployment rate fell from roughly 26 to 13 per cent. Unemployment of immature people forsaken from 51 to 33 per cent. Industrial outlay in Jan 2018 has increasing by 10.6 per cent compared to Jan 2017 and altogether unfamiliar trade sell by 39.1 per cent compared to a same duration final year. With EUR 450 million in unfamiliar proceed investments, usually in a initial dual months of 2018, Serbia is being usually ranked high on several general lists according to investment security, competitiveness and palliate of doing business.

Contributing to a strengthening of informal cooperation, R. Serbia has clinging sold courtesy to a activities carried out in a horizon of a supposed Berlin Process. Serbia has upheld a doing of informal projects jointly concluded during final year’s Western Balkans Summit in Trieste, quite those associated to infrastructure, girl investment as good as expansion of intensity new corner projects in other sectors aiming to urge a critical customary in a segment before to rigourously entering a EU.

Serbia advocates coordination and fixing of expansion policies and skeleton directed during ride and appetite connectivity of this partial of Europe with a European Union, in a proceed ensuring a synchronized and entirely aligned approach, as good as embracing good practices adopted within mixed informal initiatives, informal structures and organizations. We trust that a macro-regional inlet of a European Union proceed is means to yield present support in a form of imagination and appropriation for operations, that is quite critical for states that are now in a routine of EU integration.

We trust that a EU Enlargement Policy is one of a critical instruments of a Union, not usually in a context of stabilizing a segment and underpinning a mercantile prosperity, though also towards achieving fortitude and confidence of a EU as a whole, that was, it is my hope, unquestionably endorsed again during a new EU-WB Summit in Sofia, reflected in a existence that full membership of a EU is a usually vital choice for a Western Balkan partners. Serbia has proven to be an equal and arguable partner to a EU in a progressing years, and we are gratified that this fact was recognized, deliberation a volume of a domestic bid put to that end.

Despite a domestic and mercantile hurdles apparently confronting a EU today, we are assured that a transparent viewpoint of EU membership has been and stays a categorical motorist for a series of remodel processes and certain developments in a region. The Republic of Serbia is committed to a advent routine in a context of that it has non-stop twelve negotiating chapters so far. It is a design to open as many chapters we are prepared for as probable in a shortest timeframe possible, so that a whole bureaucratic administration could concentration on a pivotal and overarching goal, that is, full membership of a European Union.

To Serbia, as good as others in a Western Balkans, an unhindered delay of a formation process, above all a routine of prolonged and formidable reforms, is of pinnacle significance as we communicate a expectancy that undeniable support and bargain will come from all of a EU Member States. A swell done in a EU formation routine by any of us away has a certain impact on all a others in a region.

It is towards a acceleration of a European trail that we commend a multi-faceted significance of a EU Strategy for a Adriatic and Ionian Region: by enhancing a unsentimental doing we have an event to closely concur with a administrations of other participants – EU Member States, claimant and aspirant countries. At a same time, we closely concur with a European Commission, regulating a resource enabling us to second a experts to EC structures – by that we both benefit believe of a EC’s operation and have an event to showcase a ability of professionals operative in a possess bureaucratic administration, as nonetheless another dimension of a combined value of a Strategy for Serbia.

I appreciate a Italian colleagues and friends for a glorious arrangements supposing for a 3rd Forum of a EU Strategy for a Adriatic and Ionian Region – for their work and joining that are in justification all around us. To a friends from Montenegro we wish a successful Chairmanship of a Adriatic and Ionian Initiative in a year ahead. we am assured that, noticed in a broader context, a former, a stream and a subsequent Chairmanship in 2019, will have a poignant impact in a successful fulfilment of activities and projects within a EU Strategy for a Adriatic and Ionian Region, to that a team-work in a Trio Presidency format will also minister in many ways.

Thank we for your attention.

Serbian Diplomacy Day Officially Observed

Ivica DacicThe following are a remarks by First Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs of a Republic of Serbia Ivica Dacic, during a rite imprinting a Serbian Diplomacy Day:

“Distinguished Excellencies,
Dear ladies and gentlemen,
Dear colleagues,

Welcome to a rite imprinting a Serbian Diplomacy Day.

I am severely respected and gratified to hail we and to honour a Diplomacy Day to all members of a Serbian Foreign Ministry.

The central rite imprinting this day is an countenance of a prerequisite to clearly position tact as an intensely critical shred in a functioning of a Government and society. Moreover, it is an event to sum adult a formula of Serbia’s past unfamiliar domestic activities.

By restoring a Museum of Serbian Diplomacy and a coronation of a Day, a Serbian career tact has returned to a roots – a Nemanjic tact of Saint Sava pacifism, unapproachable of a formula achieved over a past 4 years. Let us discuss usually some of a formula that have helped Serbia change from being an intent to apropos a partner and theme during a turn of general politics: Serbian Chairmanship of a OSCE, tactful movement “No to Kosovo in UNESCO”, reversal of “Kosovo” approval by some countries, ascent of a initial muster on Jasenovac after WWII, during a United Nations Headquarters.

From a really inception, from a impulse of fulfilment that problems can and contingency be resolved peacefully instead by conflicts, tact imposed itself as a autarchic modus operandi in family between rulers and States. Viewed within a ancestral perspective, a investiture and refuge of assent was not easy then, usually as it is not easy now. Arriving during an best resolution within picturesque possibilities requires a lot of knowledge, skills, efforts and tough work. That is because a work in a Foreign Service is mostly invisible, notwithstanding intensely responsible, critical and exhausting. This is also because a tactful use mandate have fast laid down a correct standards for all those who wish to rivet in this profession. First and foremost, it is adore of one’s homeland, given tact is about patriotism, endless education, good communications skills, ability to review nuances and appreciate them correctly, and an harsh will to strech an excusable resolution by negotiations.

Dear friends,

The prolonged and mostly violent story of a Serbian people and state has been diligent with many trials and tribulations for a diplomacy. We sought to respond to these permanent hurdles that make this contention supportive and unique, by knowledge, skills, believe and consistency. It is along these lines that a biggest names of a Serbian tactful and egghead feel gained prominence: Stojan Novakovic, Milos Crnjanski, Rastko Petrovic, Jovan Ducic, Branislav Nusic, Milan Rakic, Ivo Andric and many others in whom we take infinite pride. Still, in their shadow, there is a vast series of career diplomats who have represented their nation in an equally cool manner.

Respecting a past and looking to a destiny with a good clarity of responsibility, a Republic of Serbia currently places a refuge of assent and fortitude during a core of a unfamiliar policy, that is not a idea in itself, though a routine and tour requiring joining and continued efforts of all to say this situation. We trust and trust that a efforts and actions profitable to assent and fortitude capacitate a country’s mercantile growth and progress, and a feat of contentment for all a citizens. By profiling Serbia’s unfamiliar routine in this proceed and by compelling assent and stability, we are creation an measureless grant to a alleviation of family in a neighborhood, for that we have been famous in a whole general village as a reliable, obliged and predicted partner. With durability joining to assent and stability, we shall always be open for all talks, ideas and initiatives directed during these imperatives. The clear boost of Serbia’s repute and a flourishing series of friends from opposite a creation validates best a positions and activities, to a good satisfaction.

The Republic of Serbia continues to pursue a European trail as a unfamiliar domestic priority, wishing to rigourously and meaningfully be some-more integrated in a family of European nations, where it has always belonged. We have finished advance along a path, with new chapters non-stop in a march of a advent negotiations, though a routine does not conform to a gait of a instituted reforms, that we have been dynamically implementing by embracing and requesting a standards of some-more grown European countries. We are operative committedly to turn a full member of a European Union, while awaiting a increase routine to enter a new theatre whereby a Republic of Serbia as a fast and arguable partner would minister to a Union’s strength. We truly trust that one of a elemental values of a European Union, as one a largest assent plan in a history, lies in a farrago and brilliance of a Member States that will be complemented by Serbia’s accession. Our nation is open to changes, that we are looking brazen to, though we do not intend to give adult a values. These values have radically always been European, with certain particular facilities fundamental in a Serbian inhabitant being.

When it comes to Kosovo and Metohija, we would like to clearly emphasize, as we have finished many times before, a joining to resolution this emanate by dialogue, but possibly side being favored. Our solve to continue a talks and a calm response to new provocations best illustrate a mature and correct approach. The approved ability of a Serbian multitude has been expressed, inter alia, by an inner discourse on Kosovo and Metohija, additionally strengthening a legitimacy of a position to strech a (mutually) excusable resolution exclusively by dialogue, but extort or imposition. It is of pinnacle significance that this is a two-way process. We design a member of provisional institutions in Pristina to perform their share of concluded obligations as a required precondition for a successful outcome, to that we have been committed for years.

The Republic of Serbia has invested and will continue to deposit limit efforts to say a family with adjacent countries during a top probable level. It is of pinnacle significance that all channels of communication be used for serve team-work and sell of views on stream topics. We trust that a good business meridian and stronger mercantile ties can be really useful for serve bolster of a confidence-building routine among a Western Balkan countries.

Moreover, we will continue to rise and revive a traditionally accessible family with many countries from around a globe, such as Russia, China, United States, India, African, Latin American and a Middle East states. Our family are formed on mutual respect, support and enterprise to foster mercantile relations, for that there are picturesque preconditions.

I was absolved to be a initial Minister of Foreign Affairs to publicize this Day in 2015 and currently we shall have a respect to compensate reverence to a people who have been operative together with us on a Ministry’s projects over a past years, by awarding them a Shield with a coat-of-arms of a Nemanjic Dynasty – a founders of a Serbian statehood, spirituality, note and diplomacy, for their grant to improving Serbia’s picture and a insurance of a critical interests.

Today a Knights of a Order of a Dragon – a Knights of Serbian diplomacy, will be group and women who quite mount out in a area of preserving informative identity, charitable work, endowments and refuge of a enlightenment of observance of WWI and WWII victims: Roksanda Ilincic, Professor Ljiljana Markovic, PhD, Marina Arsenijevic, Arno Guyon, Mila Mulroney, Rebecca MacDonald, Professor Gideon Greif, PhD, Jelena Buhac Radojcic, Gojko Roncevic Mraovic, successor of Field Marshal Stepa Stepanovic Dr. Ivana Lucic, successor of Milunka Savic Dr. Slobodanka Grkovic, a descendent of Milunka Savic and Professor Rose Gojic Stephenson – a successor of David Albala.

Believe it or not, some of a initial tactful uniforms were designed by Milica Babic, mother of a Nobel Prize Laureate Ivo Andric, and were made by Gucci. We have with us currently Roksanda Ilincic, among others, whose conform designs are ragged by VIPs in some-more than 40 countries world-wide. Since women outnumber group in a Ministry, it might good occur that tactful uniforms by Gucci be transposed by a Roksanda-style creations for emancipated and successful lady diplomats.

Today we will also establish an muster mounted by Marina Gavanski Zissis, an academy-trained painter and Honorary Consul of a Republic of Serbia in Canada, while Rosie Gojic Stephenson Goodnight and Professor Gideon Greif will benefaction during a Faculty of Philology, a monography honoring a centenary of dual vital events: a day when a Serbian dwindle flew over a White House, and a centenary of a Balfour Declaration.

I would like to take this event to appreciate to a survivors of Jasenovac thoroughness stay as good as to Professor Gideon Greif, an consultant on Jasenovac and Director of a muster displayed during a United Nations, and a descendants of Field Marshal Stepa Stepanovic and Milunka Savic, for their team-work with a Ministry of Foreign Affairs over a past 4 years.

Today is also a day when Professor Darko Tanaskovic, PhD, a renowned Ambassador, will be awarded in approval for his grant to career diplomacy, that is a source of measureless honour for me as Serbian Foreign Minister.

Dear friends,

Based on success and lessons learnt, that levy an requirement on us, and in line with a stream needs, we wish to underline that we shall continue to commission a Ministry of Foreign Affairs by serve professionalization, modernization and rejuvenation of a tactful staff. This contention requires, in further to endless trust and skills a lot of scapegoat and notwithstanding common belief, a usually payoff is personal compensation that stays with each diplomat meaningful that he has worked in a best seductiveness of his nation and people.

Once again, we would like to honour a members of a Ministry of Foreign Affairs a Diplomacy Day and we would like to wish us all a successful and cultivatable work.

Thank we for your attention.

Everything for Serbia – Serbia for nothing.

Long live Serbia!”
