US Secretary of State to visit Serbia on Dec 3-4

Relations between the United States and Serbia will get an additional boost from a visit by US Secretary of State John Kerry to Belgrade where he will attend a meeting of the Ministerial Council of the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) on December 3-4, US Ambassador to Serbia Michael Kirby and Serbian Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic said in Belgrade on Tuesday.

Relations between the two countries have been significantly advanced by Vucic's visits to Washington earlier this year and the US Secretary of State will meet with the Serbian PM at the session of the OSCE Ministerial Council, the Serbian government said in a statement after the meeting between Vucic and Kirby.

Vucic said that the partnership with the United States was of great importance to Serbia and the US ambassador said that the United States considered Serbia and Vucic's government a reliable partner.

Kirby said that the good economic results of reforms undertaken so far increased US companies' interest in investing in Serbia.

One of the topics of the talks between Vucic and Kirby was the opening of the first policy chapters in Serbia's EU accession talks and regional and international issues.
