Emmanuel Macron, French President, will come to Belgrade in mid-July to confirm good political relations and strengthen the economic links between the two countries, French ambassador to Serbia Frederic Mondoloni said on Thursday, the FoNet news agency reported.

Macron was due in Serbia last November but had to postpone the visit due to the wave of protests in France.

“Our relations are very dynamic and develop in all areas, especially in economy,” the ambassador said.

He added that the trade exchange between France and Serbia would reach two billion Euros.

Macron’s visit will come after the summit on Kosovo in Paris scheduled for July 1, during which he and German Chancellor Angela Merkel will try to revive the Belgrade – Pristina dialogue on normalisation of relations which has been on hold for six months, following Kosovo’s introduction of 100 percent of import duties on goods from Serbia and Bosnia.

The previous attempt by Merkel and Macron to make Belgrade and Pristina leaders get back to the negotiation table failed in Berlin in April.

The two sides seem far away from a compromise with Serbia’s President saying he favours the demarcation, but complains he hasn’t had widespread support for the idea at home, while Pristina insists on mutual recognition within the existing borders.
