At a joint press conference, Selakovic expressed his belief that this visit will be an additional impetus to joint efforts to revive the long tradition of friendship between the two countries.
According to him, today's meeting was very friendly, open and constructive, and the ministers confirmed their mutual willingness to intensify friendly relations between Serbia and Libya based on decades of friendship and partnership.
Our political relations in the past were seriously followed by intensive economic cooperation, but also in many other areas, and we concluded that both nations have gone through difficult periods in their history, but that what lies in the future is up to us, Selakovic said.
He emphasised that Serbia is ready to develop mutually beneficial cooperation with Libya in areas such as agriculture, health, energy, education, defence, but also in all other areas.
The Minister said that the modalities of economic ties were also discussed, as well as the communication of other ministries.
He emphasised that Serbia respects the sovereignty, independence, territorial integrity, as well as the national unity of Libya and conveyed that during the meeting he asked for more understanding when it comes to our position on the issue of Kosovo and Metohija.
I recognised from my colleague support for the negotiation process that we are leading and that an acceptable solution can only be sought within the framework of diplomatic activities, he emphasised.
El Mangoush underlined that she considers today's visit historic and added that her presence in Belgrade is a sign of the determination of the authorities in Libya to turn a new direction in the relations between the two countries.
She expressed her gratitude to the government of Serbia for supporting the government of National Unity of Libya in its work to establish stability in that country.
We have a great need for negotiations, diplomacy, and that is what will strengthen our countries the most, she said and repeated the call to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Serbia to reopen the embassy in Tripoli.
Libya is recovering, it is on the way to re-establishing peace and stability, and along the way it welcomes all the support of its friends, she said.
After the meeting, the ministers signed a Memorandum of Cooperation between the two diplomatic academies.
