Serbia's Foreign Affairs Minister, Ivica Dacic, met on Saturday in Subotica with his Croatian counterpart, Gordan Grlic Radman. After the meeting, Dacic stated that there are a number of issues on which Serbia and Croatia do not agree, but that a series of meetings are planned in order to analyze the situation and determine how the two sides can develop relations.
„We believe that regardless of the fact that we certainly think differently about some issues from our past, we have to look for ways and mechanisms for cooperation,“ said Dacic.
Dacic added that the biggest positive incentive and framework for further cooperation was the meeting in Davos between Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic and Croatian Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic, and he also praised the cooperation of representatives of Serbs in Croatia and Croats in Serbia.
Grlic Radman stated that it is in Croatia’s interest to support Serbia on its European path, but that Belgrade must meet the criteria.
