The new ambassador of Serbia to Seychelles, His Excellency Mr Aleksandar Ristic, presented his credentials to President Danny Faure at State House this morning.

President Faure congratulated Ambassador Ristic on his accreditation and expressed his wish that the strong ties of cooperation between Seychelles and Serbia continue to flourish. “Your accreditation today is a powerful sign of the commitment our countries to deepen our engagement. In reiterating our sincere congratulations and in wishing you great success in your new tenure, rest assured, Seychelles is committed to further cementing the good friendship between our nations,” said President Faure.

The Head of State and Ambassador discussed avenues to further consolidate cooperation in existing areas such as education, capacity building and healthcare. The Addis Ababa-based diplomat said he would explore all possibilities to reinforce cooperation between Seychelles and Serbia which was established more than 20 years ago during the Josip Broz Tito era, of former Yugoslavia.

Ambassador Ristic was accompanied to State House by Serbia’s Honorary Consul in Seychelles, Dr Miodrag Todorovic. Also present for the meeting were officials from the Department of Foreign Affairs.
