British Ambassador Sian MacLeod said on Tuesday that the United Kingdom and Serbia are discussing a bilateral trade agreement, adding that it was delayed by the coronavirus pandemic and the parliamentary elections.
The ambassador said that her country wants a quick agreement on a partnership with Serbia. The talks with Serbia are ongoing and are progressing. The draft agreement is based on Serbia’s Stabilization and Association Agreement with the European Union and Serbia is not being asked to accept any new obligations, she is quoted as saying in a press release in Serbian.
The UK hopes the agreement will be reached soon to limit the difficulties and delays in trade. This is in the interest of the business people, companies and consumers in both countries.
