Serbia, Iran to sign free trade agreement
BELGRADE, Serbia: Serbia says it plans to sign a free trade agreement with Iran to boost economic cooperation.
A statement by Economy Minister Mladjan Dinkic says Serbia’s exports to Iran have grown in the past few years. Dinkic says relations with Iran are "good and stable."
The statement was issued Friday after a meeting between Dinkic and an Iranian delegation led by the Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki.
Mottaki will also meet with Prime Minister Mirko Cvetkovic. Serbian media have reported that Iran is interested in buying a fertilizer factory outside Belgrade.
The Serbian government statement quoted Mottaki as inviting Serbian companies to take part in infrastructure projects in Iran.
