Serbian President Tomislav Nikolić arrived in Havana yesterday, May 18, for a two-day official visit, and was received by Rogelio Sierra, deputy minister of Foreign Affairs.
Speaking to the press at José Martí International Airport, Nikolić reaffirmed the excellent relations between his country and Cuba.
The first Serbian President to visit the island since the disintegration of the former Yugoslavia, Nikolić commented that he admires Cuba’s independence and that the friendship between the two countries remains strong. Prior to his election as President in 2012, the Serbian leader served as head of the Parliamentary Friendship with Cuba Group.
Nikolić thanked Cuba for its longstanding support to the sovereignty and territorial integrity of his nation.
The two countries’ diplomatic relations have never been interrupted since they were first established on August 30, 1943.
