The Serbian government has agreed to promote bilateral relations with the Islamic Republic of Iran with the abolition of visa requirements for Iranian citizens.
A Farsi report by IRNA has quoted Serbian government’s website as announcing that the European country has approved the cancellation of visa requirements for Iranian and Indian citizens during a meeting on August 4.
As a result, tourists as well as investors from both countries of Iran and India can enter the territory of Serbia without any problems.
The government’s website has cited improvements in business ties and the promotion of bilateral relations with Tehran and Delhi as the main achievements of such a decision.
According to IRNA, the new Serbian ambassador to Iran, Dragan Todorovic, recently presented his credentials to Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and conveyed the congratulatory message of his country’s president on the re-election of Rouhani, saying that the Serbian government is ready to strengthen its all-inclusive cooperation with Iran and that it has taken early steps to establish a banking relation with the Islamic Republic.
The new Serbian ambassador to Tehran also submitted the official invitation of the president of his country to Rouhani in which he had asked the Iranian president to travel to Serbia. He also said that the Serbian parliament would look into the visa waiver for Iranian nationals in the near future.
