President Katerina Sakellaropoulou expressed Greece’s commitment to strengthen strategic relations with Serbia and support its EU accession course during her meeting on Tuesday with visiting Serbian Foreign Minister Nikola Selaković.

Sakellaropoulou reiterated that Greece strongly supports Serbia’s EU accession course and reminded that EU’s enlargement to the Western Balkans is a strategic goal, an adamant position that was first expressed at the Thessaloniki Summit in 2003.
