Prof. Dr Marinkovic informed the Israeli Ambassador about the recently established 31-member Parliamentary Friendship Group with Israel, which had garnered the interest of both majority and opposition MPs. He said that it is very important to intensify cooperation between the two countries because they share a similar history and could build a common future. “Serbia can learn a lot from Israel which is the pillar of political stability in the Middle East”, said the National Assembly Deputy Speaker. They also spoke about the construction of a memorial complex for the victims of the Staro Sajmiste concentration camp in WW2, an enterprise endorsed by both the relevant state authorities and NGOs, added Marinkovic.

The Ambassador said that a great many Israelis want to visit Serbia and not only as tourists, since they see the Western Balkans as an investment and business opportunity.
