Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic and Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babis assessed in Belgrade on Feb. 10 that room existed for strengthening bilateral ties, which are traditionally good and friendly, without open issues.
"Serbia wants to intensify its economic relations with the Czech Republic, ,which includes the further increase in the volume of trade," Vucic stated, as conveyed by the Presidency of Serbia.
Prime Minister Babis pointed out that Serbia had demonstrated a serious approach and responsibility in the fight against the coronavirus epidemic, setting an example for many countries of Europe and the world.
After the meeting with Serbian Prime Minister Ana Brnabic, Babis assessed that Serbia should become part of the Schengen agreement before joining the European Union.
"Illegal migration is a major problem. Serbia is one of four countries which, in my opinion, should be part of the Schengen agreement. The Schengen issue is perhaps more important at this time than the EU's enlargement," Babis told reporters, adding that the EU enlargement had been significantly delayed.
