After the meeting, Selakovic told reporters that one of the main tasks is establishing international cooperation between Italy and Serbia regarding legal regulations as well as their implementation.
He added that cooperation between the two countries has given exceptional results when it comes to learning from the experience of Italy in the fight against organised crime.
The Minister of Justice stated that there are many opportunities for collaboration with Italy in the fight against corruption, the strengthening of legal mechanisms, particularly in the field of prevention of corruption.
Cantone said that from what he had a chance to see and hear during the meetings on the fight against corruption with Serbian officials is much better than what was originally expected.
He said that his talks with the justice minister covered the possibility for drafting a memorandum of understanding so as to create the conditions for cooperation in corruption prevention.
I hope that the memorandum of understanding would be signed soon and that we will have the possibility to implement good practice from Italy here and exchange our experiences with Serbia, Cantone said.
