Good family existent between a dual countries are reflected in a ever some-more grown domestic dialogue, some-more complete mercantile team-work and Israel’s investments in Serbia, as good as increasingly diversified team-work in a areas of culture, education, science, technology, tourism, etc.
I would like to take this event to indicate out in sold that Serbia rarely appreciates a scrupulous position of Israel concerning non-recognition of a uneven stipulation of autonomy of Kosovo, that positively has a temperament on a peculiarity and piece of a altogether relations.
