In a meeting held in Belgrade on Monday, Serbian Minister of Trade, Tourism and Telecommunications Tatjana Matic and Iran's ambassador to the country, Hassan Rashidpour, underlined the need for promoting commercial collaboration.

Rashidpour expressed Iran’s strong will for cooperation with Serbia, noting that Iran is willing to discuss the abolition of visas, and the establishment of direct flights between the two capitals.

"We have always attached special importance to Serbia in the Balkan region," he said, noting that the two countries' capacities can be used to develop cooperation.
