In an interview with “Srpski Telegraf”, Ambassador Đurić said that Serbia and the United States of America had established a high level of respect and understanding regarding the majority of bilateral issues, that they were exchanging positive messages, and that the cooperation was developing more and more every day in many areas.

Ambassador Đurić stated that the tragedy in Ukraine was affecting the global geopolitical trends as well as the international relations among almost all countries and stressed that Serbia was investing its efforts and energy to continue, and even increase, the upward trajectory of relations with Washington in the difficult times for entire Europe, because, as he stated, that was Serbia`s desire and interest.
