US Ambassador Christopher Hill said on Thursday that the US wants to be friends and partners with Serbia.
“We want to be friends, we want to be partners and, depending on your future determination, we want to be allies,” the ambassador said at an Independence Day party at his residence.
He said that the US wants to better understand “our friends in Serbia” and looks forward to building long-term relations based on common values and interests. The depth and width of our relations can lead us to do great things together if … we are tolerant towards our differences and resolve prejudices from the past with an open mind and look forward,” Hill said.
The event was attended by Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic, Prime Minister Ana Brnabic, Serbian Orthodox Church (SPC) head Patriarch Porfirije and a number of ruling coalition and opposition officials.
