Nebojsa Stefanovic, Serbia’s Defence Minister, and the US congressmen Eric Swalwell and Sean Maloney discussed in Belgrade on Thursday the further bilateral cooperation between the two countries, the Ministry said in a statement.
It added the congressmen said they hoped Serbia and the US would bring the cooperation in defence at a higher level, but also in other areas.
According to the statement, Swalwell and Maloney supported Serbia’s economic progress and praised Belgrade for “a positive influence at the world safety, mostly through its participation in the UN and EU multinational operations.
Stefanovic added that the two countries had an upward trend in bilateral relations, and that “traditionally, the most promising part is in defence.”
The US ambassador to Serbia Antony Godfrey and the head of Serbia’s Military Information Agency Brigadier General Zoran Stojkovic were also present at the meeting.
Earlier, Swalwell and Maloney had talks with Serbia’s President Aleksandar Vucic.
