TIMISOARA – Turbulent times are ahead for Europe and the world – good-neighbourly relations are a necessity, and the people of Serbia and Romania should be benefitting from them, Serbian PM Aleksandar Vucic said in Timisoara Thursday.

Speaking after a meeting with Romanian PM Dacian Ciolos, Vucic thanked him for Bucharest’s major support for the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Serbia and, in particular, its support for Serbia’s EU path.

I want to express great gratitude for the fact that Serbs and Romanians have had good relations for decades and centuries now, Vucic said.

Development of economic relations is particularly important, Vucic said, announcing that the border crossing between Nakovo, Serbia and Lunga, Romania, would start operating around the clock.

The volume of bilateral trade is good and stands at 1.13 bln euros, Vucic said.
