Serbia

The Ambassador of the European Union to Serbia, Sem Fabrizi, met Serbia’s President Aleksandar Vučić on 17 March to discuss the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic and the vaccination process, the dynamics of accession negotiations, as well as stability in the region.

 

Ambassador Fabrizi assured President Vučić that the EU would continue to support Serbia’s efforts to fight COVID-19 emphasising that the European Commission announced the allocation of €12 million for Serbia from the EU Solidarity Fund, which is another indicator of the EU’s support for Serbia since the outbreak of the pandemic. The Ambassador commented positively on Serbia’s contribution to the COVAX programme and congratulated Serbia on the results achieved in the vaccination process and the timely measures taken in the fight against the coronavirus.

 

President Vučić thanked the EU for its support to Serbia and expressed hope that the first contingents of vaccines from the COVAX programme will arrive soon.

 

Ambassador Fabrizi pointed out that despite the current challenges caused by the pandemic, the EU keeps the issue of enlargement very high on its agenda, given the new methodology to be presented by the European Commission. President Vučić also confirmed that cooperation with the European Union and full membership of Serbia remains one of the key foreign policy priorities of the country.
