BELGRADE – PM Aleksandar Vucic’s election as president of Serbia is very significant as it gives him an even stronger mandate to continue reforms and bring Serbia closer to its goal of EU membership and integration with EU institutions, US Deputy Assistant Secretary for European and Eurasian Affairs Hoyt Brian Yee said in Belgrade Wednesday.

Yee conveyed an invitation from US Vice President Michael Pence to Vucic to visit the US in the coming months.

“We remain committed to providing assistance, whatever we can, to help Serbia with its goal of economic growth and continued integration,” he told a press conference after a meeting with Vucic.

Yee said he had exchanged views with Vucic on various regional issues and challenges and ways in which Serbia, the US and other partners could help the entire region to move forward to become more successful and more stable.
