President Vučić also expressed gratitude in his letter written to the President of Burundi, Pierre Nkurunziza, which he handed over to Minister Nyamitwe.

As stated by the Office for Media Relations of the President of the Republic, Vučić invited President Nkurunziza to visit Serbia so that they can work jointly on promoting the interstate relations in the future.

As President Vučić announced, Serbia will soon open a diplomatic office in the capital Budzhumburi.

Minister Nyamitwe conveyed the greetings of President Nkurunziza and stressed that it was indeed the President who had issued a clear instruction on withdrawing the recognition of the unilaterally declared independence of Kosovo, after carefully reviewing all circumstances, including relevant international instruments, such as the UN Security Council Resolution, as well as mindful of the friendly relations between Belgrade and Budzhumbura dating back from the period of the former SFRY.

The Minister Nyamitwe reiterated the Republic of Burundi's support for the territorial integrity and sovereignty of the Republic of Serbia.

The two interlocutors agreed that there are many opportunities for developing cooperation in the areas of trade, defense and security, mining and public finance, as well as in education, culture and sports.

Both interlocutors expect that the eight proposed interstate agreements would be harmonized as soon as possible. These would form basis for more intensive contacts and stronger ties between Serbia and Burundi.
