Baku – APA. Armenian President Serzh Sarkisyan visited Serbia on Monday on a visit aimed at strengthening bilateral economic ties, APA reports quoting “The Voice of America”.
Serbian President Boris Tadic and other top officials received Mr. Sarkisyan in the capital Belgrade.
Following a closed-door meeting, the two presidents said the two countries have a history of close political relations that should now be matched by closer economic and cultural ties. The two sides were expected to sign several cooperation agreements during the Armenian president’s one-day visit.
Noting that both Armenia and Serbia are located in regions with a turbulent past, the two leaders agreed that regional problems should be resolved peacefully, through negotiations.
Armenia has been unable to reach an agreement with neighboring Azerbaijan on the issue of Nagorno-Karabakh, an Armenian-speaking enclave inside Azerbaijan. Serbia has yet to establish relations with Kosovo, which declared independence from Belgrade in 2008 despite Serbia’s fierce opposition.
The Armenian president promised that Yerevan will not act contrary to Serbia’s interests. While many European and other countries have recognized Kosovo’s independence, Armenia has not.
