Head of National Assembly Standing Delegation Meets with NATO PA President
In the course of the NATO PA Spring Session in Vilnius, the Head of the standing delegation of the National Assembly of the Republic of Serbia Dragan Sormaz met with NATO PA President US Congressman Gerald Connolly.
In the course of the conversation, it was pointed out that the delegation of the National Assembly of the Republic of Serbia has been participating in the work of the NATO PA for twenty years, starting in May 2002. Connolly was briefed on the current course of the dialogue between Belgrade and Pristina, i.e. the fact that Pristina does not adhere to the provisions of the Washington Agreement since it has submitted a request for membership in the Council of Europe. The Head of the standing delegation also pointed out that Pristina was not implementing the provisions of the Brussels Agreement, and appealed for support as regards these issues, drawing attention to the need for a constructive approach by Pristina in the further continuation of the dialogue. The NATO PA President emphasised the Serbian National Assembly delegation’s active contribution to the work of the NATO PA, pointing out that he would consider the current situation and expressing readiness to visit Belgrade in the coming period.
The Head of the standing delegation of the National Assembly of the Republic of Serbia also met with US Congressman Mike Turner with whom he discussed the bilateral relations between the Republic of Serbia and the US, as well as opportunities for improving interparliamentary cooperation.
