Ambassador says stable Serbia in Croatia’s interest Izvor: N1

Croatia’s Ambassador in Belgrade Hidajet Biscevic told N1 on Thursday that a stable Serbia is in his country’s interest, adding that the two countries have to make sure coming generations look in different directions despite everything burdening their views of the recent past.

“A stable Serbia is in Croatia’s interest and how that will happen is not up to us to comment but is up to the Serbian leadership,” the recently appointed ambassador said.

He said that Croatia, which holds the EU Council presidency, could organize an inter-governmental conference to open new pre-acession negotiation chapters for Serbia. “That is in the mutual interest of both Croatia and Serbia,” he said.  

According to Biscevic, the important thing for Serbia is that the European Union remains its strategic partner. “It is the biggest donor, the biggest investments from the EU, most of Serbia’s exports are to EU markets. Also, the EU offers a certain set of values and is a symbol of those values which I am convinced the Serbian people want to adopt,” he said.  

The ambassador said that his first meeting with Serbian President Alksandar Vucic lasted 45 instead of the customary 10 minutes. “I am encouraged with the way we spoke, topics and mutual efforts to stabilize relations permanently,” he said.
