“First Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs Ivica Dacic met with US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson today (February 9) in Washington.

Minister Dačić stressed that the meeting was exceptionally good and stressed that the talks were dedicated to the future and bilateral relations between Serbia and the United States.

;Before the meeting, I wrote in the guestbook that I dedicate this meeting to the centenary of the US and Serbian alliances in the First World War.

This is a very important date for us this year on July 28, then it marks 100 years since the Serbian Day in the United States, on the day when Woodrow Wilson ordered the Serbian flag to stand out at the White House in recognition of Serbia’s recognition of all victims in World War I.

Since then, 100 years have passed, and that is why we want to reset our relations, to seek common interests, to look for ways in which the United States can help achieve our key goal – stability, peace in the region and solving open issues. First of all, I am thinking of an attempt to resolve the problems of Kosovo and Metohija permanently.” (translated from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Serbia)
