Serbian FM Nikola Selakovic met with Zimbabwean FM Frederick Shava on Monday.

The ministers met on the margins of the 60th anniversary summit of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) in Belgrade.

They said boosting political dialogue by exchanging high- and top-level visits was in mutual interest.

Selakovic thanked Zimbabwe for its principled and consistent support for the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Serbia and protection of Serbia’s state and national interests in multilateral organisations.

The parties agreed that bilateral relations were traditionally friendly and that efforts must be made to take economic cooperation to a higher level, the Serbian Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

Selakovic said there was very ample room for strengthening the cooperation in trade and agriculture.

The minister said he was confident the planned opening of a Serbian diplomatic and consular representation office in Harare would accelerate the restoration of close ties between the two countries.

Shava thanked Serbia for its solidarity and a donation of 30,000 COVID-19 vaccine doses to Zimbabwe.
