Science Minister Ana Pešikan was also present, and pointed out that a delegation from her ministry had visited India in February, and that the delegation had spoken to Indian Science Minister Kapila Sibal.
"I believe that the cooperation will be productive and that it will provide mutual benefits, because the agreement that was signed today was formulated in an atmosphere of mutual good will and friendly feeling,” said the Indian ambassador.
Jeremić expressed his belief that the agreement on scientific cooperation would lead to closer ties between India and Serbia, who are already cooperating on many issues, including those in the political domain.
The foreign minister reiterated once more that India’s stand on Kosovo was “firm and clear” and that India opposed recognition of Kosovo’s independence.
The agreement signed today sets as a priority cooperation between the two countries’ researchers in the fields of information technology, agro- and biotechnology, nanotechnology, energy efficiency, water resource management, and the construction of innovation centers.
This program stems from an agreement on scientific and technological cooperation signed between the Council of Ministers of the then state of Serbia and Montenegro and the Indian government on October 28, 2004.
