Bilateral meetings between DPM and MFA Dačić on the margins of the 43rd Ministerial Conference of La Francophonie in Djerba

18. Nov 2022.
First Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs Ivica Dačić had today, on the sidelines of the 43rd Ministerial Conference of La Francophonie, numerous bilateral meetings with representatives of delegations of member states, associated members and observers of La Francophonie.

Dačić and Senior Presidential Secretary of the Republic of Korea in charge of future strategy Jang Sung-min exchanged positions and views on current political events on the two peninsulas, the Balkans and the Korean Peninsula, on the sidelines of the Ministerial Conference La Francophonie in Tunisia, and the Korean official suggested First Deputy Prime Minister Dačić to visit Korea. The two interlocutors agreed that it was necessary to improve traditionally good bilateral relations through the implementation of several joint projects, as well as Korean investments in the Republic of Serbia.

During the substantive conversation between Ivica Dačić and Togo's Minister of Foreign Affairs Robert Dussey, the interlocutors pointed out the tradition of cooperation between the two countries established during the process of decolonisation and the struggle for Togo's independence. They also exchanged views on the current political situation in Europe and Africa, and expressed expectations that future cooperation would improve through increased activity in bilateral relations, as well as through cooperation and support in multilateral organisations. Minister Dačić expressed the hope that the planned visit of the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Togo to Belgrade would be carried out soon.

Minister Dačić in Djerba also spoke with Minister of Foreign Affairs of Bulgaria Nikolay Milkov and expressed the hope that intensive cooperation would continue in the coming period, which the two counterparts also discussed during the recent visit of the Serbian Minister of Foreign Affairs to Sofia.

It was jointly assessed that the relatively high degree of concurrence of political views of the two countries was an example of successful cooperation through the activities and projects of various regional and international organisations, such as La Francophonie.
