“I am really blissful that something we have talked about for many years is being remarkable in this way, both in Washington D.C. and Belgrade.
I saved from unconcern an eventuality dating behind to one hundred years ago and brought behind to concentration a story that is now publicly talked about by a U.S. Administration. we impute to a fact that Serbia enjoyed outrageous support of a U.S. during World War we as good as that U.S. President Woodrow Wilson enclosed Serbia and a Serbian people in a Fourteen Points for a fortitude of tellurian crisis, where, among other things, he remarkable that Serbia should be accorded giveaway and secure entrance to a sea.
The United States was means to entirely know a bulk of scapegoat offering by Serbia and a people in a World War I. Of course, a team-work continued during a World War II as well.
I was means to put this story behind on a map and, as a result, a relic to Woodrow Wilson will shortly be inaugurated in Belgrade.
Furthermore, while we conducted a investigate on this matter, we found out that a city of Belgrade, as early as 1919, named a block nearby a railway hire after President Wilson. Today, we are considering to build a relic in respect of both President Wilson and Mihajlo Pupin – a black of U.S.-Serbia friendship.
It is critical that we use this critical anniversary as an eventuality to reset a relations. The ties of team-work and support have subsided over a decades since. In that period, we unsuccessful to brand common interests and find a common denominator, though a time has come for us to urge a relations. It is critical that we plead these matters with a new U.S. Administration, and we trust that this is an eventuality for Serbia and a people.
Today, we had a really good assembly with Assistant Secretary of State Wess Mitchell. The new administration is peaceful to listen to Serbia’s proposals and positions as good as to come adult with artistic solutions, instead of following a existent clichés and practices of a prior administration.
These contacts are important, it is also critical that a Serbian Prime Minister and Prime Minister of a Republic of Srpska are here with us today, as are U.S. Congressmen and other member of a U.S. Administration.
I will accommodate with Assistant to a President for National Security Affairs Mr. John Bolton and attend in a Ministerial to Advance Religious Freedom, hosted by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.
This is a good eventuality for us to brand common interests that we mislaid steer of in a past decades that can advantage from events like this one.
On Saturday, a identical eventuality will take place in Belgrade where a Serbian dwindle will be flown over a chateau of a U.S. Ambassador”, pronounced Serbian Foreign Minister after a rite hold in U.S. Congress.
