President of Serbia Aleksandar Vucic held a meeting with visiting Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel here on Wednesday, pledging to improve bilateral ties.

The two sides signed two agreements – an MOU on cooperation in the field of agriculture, as well as a visa-free regime for holders of diplomatic passports, the presidential office of Serbia said in a press release.

The two countries have a long history of political relations, and will continue to support each other concerning each other’s territorial integrity, Diaz-Canel said at the meeting.

“We confirmed our desire to strengthen the ties between our countries. We want to improve investments and economic ties. Our dialogue is excellent, and we have excellent relations between the ministries of foreign affairs. We must develop cooperation in culture, health, and sports,” he added.

Meanwhile, Vucic thanked his Cuban counterpart for the political support to Serbia, and highlighted potential fields for cooperation. These range from political and social ties, to cooperation in agriculture, health, and other fields.

“Serbia is a country that is self-sufficient in agriculture and we have significant surpluses, and are working to overcome the difficulties regarding food exports. Cuba is a superpower in sports, and we see an opportunity to expand cooperation there,” said Vucic.

Diaz-Canel’s was the first official presidential visit from Cuba to Serbia in four decades.
