Ambassador of Serbia H. E. Mr. Ivan Mrkic and Honourable Mr. Satsuki Eda, President of the House of Counsellors of the National Diet of Japan, in the meeting which took place in Mr. Eda's official residence, exchanged views about bilateral cooperation between Serbia and Japan, especially between the parliaments of the two countries, and the possibilities for its future development.

Serbian Ambassador also informed President Eda about recent activities of the Serbian National Assembly, including the adoption of the Declaration condemning the crime in Srebrenica, which occurred during the conflict in the former Yugoslavia in 1995. He explained that this was the first such document adopted among the countries that belonged to former Yugoslavia, with an aim to promote reconciliation and peaceful coexistence, expressing his expectation that other former Yugoslav republics too will follow Serbian example.

Mr. Eda highly praised this act, expressing his hope for the lasting peace and prosperity of Serbia and the region of the Western Balkans as a whole.
