In a message to his Serbian counterpart Tomislav Nikolic released on Wednesday, President Rouhani felicitated Nikolic and Serbia’s government and people on the country’s February 15 national holiday.
He expressed the hope that given the current potentials of the two nations, the ties between the Islamic Republic and the Republic of Serbia would further develop in all fields of mutual interest.
