Political relations

Bilateral relations are traditionally good and friendly, with no open issues. Regarding politics, they were determined through common membership in the Non-Aligned Movement. There is interest for improving political dialogue and cooperation in the field of economy, infrastructure, and agriculture.

A number of meetings were held during recent years at the level of the foreign affairs ministers of the two countries on the side-lines of international and regional events.

The then Vice President of the Plurinational State of Bolivia Álvaro García Linera was in Belgrade during 25—28 July 2017, participating in the XVIII Congress of the Federación Internacional de Estudios sobre América Latina y el Caribe (FIEALC). On this occasion he met the then First Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs Ivica Dačić.
