Argentina to maintain its principled position to adhere to international law, supporting the territorial integrity of Serbia

First Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Serbia Ivica Dacic had talks today in Buenos Aires with Minister of Foreign Affairs of Argentina Jorge Marcelo Faurie.

After the meeting, Minister Dacic emphasized that Serbia and Argentina were two friendly countries as well as that Argentina would maintain its principled position to adhere to international law and support the territorial integrity of Serbia.

“Minister Faurie stated clearly that Argentina will not change its stance on Kosovo, while Serbia, on the other hand, firmly supports Argentina’s positions concerning Malvinas in the dispute with Great Britain.”

Minister Dacic stressed the importance of developing further and enhancing the relations in other areas of mutual interest as well.

“A park in Belgrade was named after the Argentine Republic, and today in Buenos Aires a square named after the Republic of Serbia is being formally inaugurated, all of which demonstrates the close and friendly ties existing between the two countries.”

Ministers Dacic and Faurie signed an Agreement between the Republic of Serbia and the Argentine Republic on Trade and Economic Cooperation.

“There is a shared interest to promote economic cooperation, with foreign trade between us amounting to EUR 18 million in the previous year it is our interest to identify the best possible course of action for developing such cooperation.”

The Head of Serbian diplomacy announced that the Argentinian Minister would visit Serbia next year, seeing that the next year marks the 90th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Argentina and Serbia.
