Selaković: Serbia is actively involved in combating terrorism, radicalism and extremism

11. May 2022.

Today, in Marrakesh, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Serbia Nikola Selaković participated in the Ministerial Meeting of the Global Coalition to Defeat ISIS. Minister Selaković said that Serbia was committed to the multilateral aspect of the fight against terrorism, adding that he firmly believed the United Nations should be the key forum for international cooperation in this field.


Minister Selaković stated that Serbia was fulfilling all international obligations pertaining to the implementation of UN Security Council resolutions, especially those related to the introduction of arms embargoes, including bans aimed at non-state actors, terrorist organisations and related individuals. He emphasised that Serbia was a signatory to 15 international conventions against terrorism. “By participating in multinational UN and EU peacekeeping missions, Serbia is making a concrete contribution to preserving regional and global security,” Minister Selaković said, paying tribute to a member of the Serbian Army, Lieutenant Colonel Dejan Stanojević and his colleagues, who tragically lost their lives on March 29 in the United Nations Mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.


“Serbia does not diminish the importance of other international forums, which is why it joined the Global Coalition from the very beginning, and selflessly contributes to international efforts to fight ISIS, primarily through various forms of donations in military equipment, ammunition, and training in Iraqi security forces”, Minister Selaković said. He added that as a candidate country for membership in the European Union, Serbia gave its full contribution through active participation in European policies on the fight against terrorism, and had developed a strategic cooperation with EUROPOL.


Minister Selaković noted that Serbian criminal legislation provided instruments to prevent and punish the encouragement, organisation, and participation of its citizens in wars or conflicts in foreign countries. He explained that the Serbian judicial authorities had completed proceedings against 7 persons engaged in foreign battlefields, and that several investigations against persons connected with terrorist activities were underway.


Minister Selaković said that the fight against terrorism, radicalism and extremism was a priority, and that Serbia was actively involved in combating these challenges and threats at the domestic, regional, and international level.


Belgrade to get Centre for Fourth Industrial Revolution

7 February 2022

Prime Minister Ana Brnabic attended today in Geneva the signing of the Agreement on the Establishment of the World Economic Forum Centre for the Fourth Industrial Revolution in Serbia, the first of its kind in the Western Balkans.


The agreement was signed at the headquarters of that forum by Director of the Office for Information Technologies and eGovernment Mihailo Jovanovic and Managing Director and Head of the Forum's Centre for the Fourth Industrial Revolution Jeremy Jurgens.


The centre in Serbia will be the 16th in the network of centres of the World Economic Forum in the world and the first in the region of the Western Balkans.


The new centre will start operating on 1 March and will function as a non-profit organisation and a platform for public-private partnership and cooperation for the Fourth Industrial Revolution, while the focus of work will be on artificial intelligence and bioengineering.


This centre will work within the Serbian government’s Office for Information Technologies and eGovernment and will cooperate with scientific institutes, state institutions and the private sector.


The signing of this document was also attended by founder and Executive Director of the World Economic Forum Klaus Schwab and President of the World Economic Forum Borge Brende, with whom Brnabic had previously met.


Addressing the press, Brnabic pointed out that this agreement is the result of many years of joint work between Serbia and the World Economic Forum.


We started talking in 2018, signed a Memorandum of Understanding, then 2020 hampered us a bit, but we continued to plan in 2021 and here we are today, she said.


According to her, the centre will be focused on the development of artificial intelligence, biomedicine and biotechnology, and on the ways in which digitalisation can raise the productivity of companies and the entire economy.
This is what further leads to higher salaries, a better standard of living, as well as to an economy that is mainly based on knowledge, creativity and innovation, Brnabic emphasised.


Today, we have received great recognition for everything that Serbia has done in the field of digitalisation, development of high technologies and paradigm shift – from an economy that was based on labour-intensive investments to digital development.


That is why this agreement shows that Serbia has been recognised as one of the leaders in the economy and IT industry in the last six years, the Prime Minister pointed out and assessed that this is the announcement of the beginning of an even closer cooperation between Serbia and WEF.


She added that they will have a joint meeting with the 16 WEF centres for the fourth industrial revolution in the world every month, at which they will talk about what each of them is doing, since each has a different focus.


That is how we will hear what everyone is doing every month, learn from each other and I am sure that the centre in Belgrade will be one of the best, the Prime Minister said.


According to her, this gives us visibility, the opportunity to further establish Serbia as an investment destination, a country good for living and investing in new technologies and knowledge.


Jovanovic said that the ecosystem formed around the centre will use the infrastructure of the National Platform for the Development of Artificial Intelligence, the Centre for Genome Sequencing and the future bioeconomic centre – BIO4 Campus.

Meeting with the Serbian member of the Presidency of Bosnia and Herzegovina

14.01.2022.

President of the Republic of Serbia Aleksandar Vučić met today with the Serbian member of the Presidency of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Milorad Dodik. The two interlocutors assessed that peace and stability are of critical importance for the entire region.

President Dodik pointed out that an unprecedented political and media campaign is being waged against the Republic of Srpska and the Serb people in Bosnia and Herzegovina, not only in Sarajevo but also in numerous Western power centres.

Giving an example, Milorad Dodik highlighted the celebration of the Republic of Srpska Day, followed by the most heinous insults from Sarajevo and the mouths of many Western politicians, who presented an ordinary event attended by regular and legal police forces of the Republic of Srpska as a threat to peace, whereas the genuine threat to peace by Muslim paramilitary units, the Green Berets, and their gathering in Sarajevo and Bužim, was not even mentioned.

President Dodik underlined that it is nearly impossible for the Serbian people to fight for justice and consistent implementation of the Dayton Agreement due to the unilateral and biased approach, primarily that of the United States of America.

President Vučić assessed that the US sanctions against Milorad Dodik and other officials of the Republic of Srpska represent a dreadful precedent and that they can only produce catastrophic consequences for the development of relations between the three nations and two entities in Bosnia and Herzegovina and beyond, in the entire region.

"Sanctions have always brought only a problem, and never a solution," President Vučić added.

Considering the weight of the position of the entire Serbian nation, and particularly the inappropriate and unjust pressures on the Republic of Srpska and its leadership, President Vučić asked President Dodik and all political forces in the Republic of Srpska to participate in the work of joint institutions in Bosnia and Herzegovina and to protect the interests of the Serbian people and the Republic of Srpska in the best manner.

President Vučić pointed out that every decision is up to the Republic of Srpska leadership, but that he also invites President Dodik and all political representatives in the Republic of Srpska to consider his suggestion, as it is clear that some political factors that substantially jeopardise the stability of the entire region through untruths and insinuations are endeavouring to assign the fault for that to the Serbian people and the Republic of Srpska.

"My request to President Dodik and all political factors in the Republic of Srpska is not a request to agree with anything or to vote for anything. On the contrary, my request is that the table where the Republic of Srpska representatives should sit should not be vacant and that they should fight in the best possible way for the interests of the entities and the Serbian people," Vučić emphasised.

President Vučić offered to present his proposal to President Dodik and all institutions and political representatives in Banja Luka.

President Vučić and President Dodik also discussed the significant financial support the Republic of Serbia plans for the Republic of Srpska, and that the teams of the two presidents and the two governments will speed up talks and inform the public as soon as possible.

Vučić and Dodik also consented to hold a grand assembly of the Republic of Serbia and the Republic of Srpska, including a joint session of the two governments on January 27, when strategic economic projects and further improvement of cooperation in all areas between Serbia and the Republic of Srpska will be decided.
