Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic told US Ambassador Christopher Hill that he hopes relations between the two countries will improve further, a statement said.
The statement said that Hill and Vucic agreed that preserving peace and stability are the conditions for the progress of Serbia and the entire region, adding that US support in that regard is of great importance. It said that they discussed bilateral cooperation, unspecified global issues and the situation in the region.
Mining and Energy Minister Zorana Mihajlovic told Ambassador Hill in a separate meeting that the two countries would benefit greatly from an agreement on a strategic partnership of the kind that Serbia has with Russia, China, France, Italy, the UAE, Azerbaijan and Hungary.
Hill is quoted as saying that the Western Balkans has great potential for economic development. He said that efforts, including the Open Balkan initiative, have to be invested to attract American investors.
