After a meeting with Angolan President Joao Lourenco, Selakovic told reporters that there are numerous opportunities to improve economic relations between the two countries, and that a meeting of the two heads of state will be held soon, which will be a clear signal to the Serbian business community about investment opportunities in Angola.
We have drafted several agreements, which should be signed at the highest level, and which will be of key importance for the improvement of economic cooperation, the Minister said, adding that the great opportunities for economic cooperation are insufficiently used on the ground.
According to him, it would be useful to hold a business forum along with the meeting of the presidents of the two countries, because it would be a great opportunity to find additional space for cooperation.
Selakovic explained that one of the main reasons for his visit to Angola is the donation of Serbia in the form of 50,000 doses of the Sputnik V coronavirus vaccine, which once again confirmed that Serbia and Angola are friendly and fraternal countries.
We are countries committed to the same values, we respect international law, we do not interfere in the affairs of other countries, and we support each other in international organisations, he stated.
The Minister stated that the meeting with President Lourenco was also an opportunity to make an invitation for a delegation of Angola to participate in the event marking the 60th anniversary of the Belgrade conference of the Non-Aligned Movement.
He said that during the meeting with the President of Angola, he expressed gratitude for the strong and consistent support of that country to the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Serbia, that is, the support on the issue of Kosovo and Metohija.
In Angola, the Minister also met with Foreign Minister Tete Antonio, as well as with Minister of Health Silvia Lutucuta, with whom he signed an Agreement on the donation of Serbia of 50,000 doses of the Sputnik V vaccine.
