President of the Republic of Serbia Aleksandar Vucic received on Wednesday in Belgrade a delegation of the British House of Lords.

According to a statement issued by the Presidency, Vucic and his guests spoke about “regional issues and the European path of Serbia.”

Vucic “thanked the representatives of the House of Lords for their interest in the problems that the Western Balkans is facing, and pointed out that there are still many important issues on the European agenda of Serbia.”

He also said he was grateful that Britain was – “despite Brexit” – ready to assist Serbia in the process of EU integration.

Vucic further said he was satisfied with bilateral relations, and “stressed that Serbia is interested in improving and strengthening them further, especially in the field of economy, and in more British investments.”

“We are ready to continuously strengthen political dialogue at the higher, and the highest level,” Vucic said, and “stressed that he expects the UK to show more understanding for Serbia’s position regarding Kosovo and Metohija.”

Representatives of the British Parliament emphasized that their delegation was in Serbia to collect information in order to better formulate the UK policy towards the Western Balkans after Brexit, and define a modality of activities aimed at contributing to the stability of the region, the statement said.
