Stefanović and Alie signed a memorandum of understanding regarding inter-parliamentary cooperation.

"What we have started by signing the memorandum today is a continuation of a sincere and brotherly sentiment and cooperation between our two nations, Stefanović told Tanjug, and added:

"The parliaments of the two countries have made a commitment, but us speakers feel it as our commitment as well, to work hard for the two countries to come even closer together and to improve our economic cooperation so the two economies and peoples would benefit from it."

He thanked Indonesia for understanding and supporting Serbia in difficult times, especially in terms of Kosovo, and for understanding that only sincere and friendly cooperation can bring progress in the relations between the two countries.

"I said I wanted us to start deep analyses, consultations and cooperation as soon as possible when it comes to economy, and above all to welcome Indonesian investors, and I think it is possible for Serbia to become a centre for marketing Indonesian goods, not only in Serbia, but in the entire region," Stefanović noted.
