Political relations

Political relations are traditionally good and friendly. Libya was one of the most important Arab partners of the former Yugoslavia and Serbia during the decades-long rule of Muamar El Gaddafi. The backbone of that cooperation was: construction, health and military industry. Political dialogue has stalled in recent years due to the current situation in Libya.
