A round of bilateral political consultations between the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Serbia and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the State of Kuwait was held today in Belgrade, headed on the Serbian side by State Secretary Nemanja Stevanovic, and on the Kuwaiti side by Deputy Foreign Minister Khalid Suleiman Al Jarallah.
The consultations presented an opportunity to take stock of the current situation in the bilateral relations between Serbia and Kuwait and identify prospects for further development of the cooperation.
Both sides estimated that the relations were traditionally good and friendly, but that it was necessary to increase the dynamic of bilateral visits and invest additional efforts aimed at promoting economic cooperation, by raising the level of trade and investments.
To this end, the interlocutors agreed on the need to reactivate the Joint Committee for Cooperation in Trade and Economy between the two states.
State Secretary Stevanovic and Deputy Minister Al Jarallah also exchanged views on the ongoing crises in the wider Middle East region as well as on other international issues.
