The US ambassador to Serbia Antony Godfrey said on Wednesday he aimed to do all in his power to upgrade the relations between the two countries and that the best way was to help Belgrade on its European path, the Beta news agency reported.

Following the meeting with Serbia’s Deputy Group for Friendship with the US, Godfrey told joint news conference with the Group head Dragan Sormaz, he had heard a lot of opinions from MPs, that he appreciated their suggestions and advice and that he was looking forward to meeting them again.

“I aim to give my best to improve the relationship between the US and Serbia, and I want to thank the Group for supporting my goal. My and my country’s view is that the best way to help Serbia is to support its intention to join the European Union,” the ambassador said.

Sormaz, an MP from the ruling Serbian Progressive Party (SNS) described the meeting as constructive, adding the topic was how the US embassy and Serbia’s Parliament could improve the cooperation between the two countries.

“We talked about resting our relations, to move them back where they had been before, to rely on each other and be great friends,” Sormaz said.

He added Serbia was in a situation in which it “needs help from everyone, especially from the EU, the country seen as the leader of the democratic world.”
