First Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Serbia Ivica Dacic visited Tara Gandhi, granddaughter of Mahatma Gandhi in New Delhi today.
Ms. Tara Gandhi conveyed to Minister Dacic her recollections of the period when she lived with Mahatma Gandhi, a time when a new, democratic and independent India came into being.
Minister Dacic pointed to the high esteem in which Serbian people continued to hold Mahatma Gandhi to this day. As Tara Gandhi wrote a book about the time she spent beside Mahatma, the Serbian Foreign Minister suggested that her book be translated to Serbian and published in our country.
Ms. Tara Gandhi was pleased to accept this proposal and promised the Minister that, once the book went to print, she would visit Belgrade as his guest.
