American Ambassador Anthony Godfrey told Tuesday’s meeting of the Serbian-American Friendship Congress that the United States want Serbia to become a modern, democratic and prosperous country.
He added that Serbian should achieve its strategic goal of membership in the European Union and should be a country ruled by law which respects all human and minority rights.
He said that the US is not competing for influence but wants Serbia and the entire region to join the EU. “Serbia is a political and economic leader in the Balkans and plays a key role in regional stability,” Godfrey said.
The ambassador recalled that US companies have invested some four billion Euro in Serbia and are employing 20,000 people with another billion Euro invested in strengthening the economy, reinforce the judiciary system and good governance.
