The Speaker of the National Assembly of the Republic of Serbia Maja Gojkovic met today with Slovenian Prime Minister Marjan Sarec currently in official visit to Serbia.
Gojkovic and Sarec agreed that the bilateral relations are on a rise and the two countries enjoy dynamic cooperation and exchange of visits at all levels of government.
Gojkovic said that interparliamentary cooperation is very intense as evidenced by the fact that she met with Slovenian National Assembly Dejan Zidan five times in less than a year.
Gojkovic said that the Memorandum of Cooperation the two parliaments signed gave their cooperation a new, institutionalized form, opening up prospects for further cooperation within Serbia’s European integration process and at the level of working bodies in charge of economy, tourism, environmental protection, culture and parliamentary friendship groups.
Gojkovic added that the Memorandum of Cooperation also opens up new prospects for multilateral cooperation, saying she expected the Slovenian National Assembly Speaker to head the Slovenian delegation to the 141st Inter-Parliamentary Union Assembly in Belgrade, on 13-17 October.
Sarec said the cooperation between the two countries is at an admirable level and, most importantly, their interparliamentary cooperation and exchange experiences is very dynamic.
Gojkovic and Sarec also spoke about Euro-integration and Gojkovic thanked Slovenia for its support of Serbia’s European integration process. Gojkovic said that Serbia will continue to work hard on the path to the EU, employ concrete measures to apply the European Commission’s recommendations concerning the National Assembly’s work and is accordingly expecting a more positive EC report.
The meeting with the Slovenian Prime Minister was also attended by the head of the PFG with Slovenia Milija Miletic and PFG member Prof. Dr Snezana Bogosavljevic Boskovic.
