Ivica DacicFirst Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Serbia Ivica Dacic participated at the Western Balkans Summit in London today.

“We witnessed at today’s panel that the problems in the EU itself and around the EU are very topical and that this now sheds a different light on the London Summit”. I knew something was wrong when Boris Johnson did not turn up all day.

We will complete our business scheduled for today, meaning discussions of Interior and Foreign Ministers. Our meetings evolved in a good atmosphere and instead of Boris Johnson Foreign Ministers’ Meeting was chaired by Sir Alan Duncan, the Minister of State for Europe and the Americas. Our business as usual included the WB perspective, its EU perspective, projects, solving of bilateral issues peacefully and the need to address legacy issues. As to the formal segment of the meeting and its conclusions, everything was done in a correct atmosphere”, the Head of the Serbian diplomacy said, following the meeting in London.
