"Receive my congratulations on the occasion of the victory in the parliamentary elections, as well as the best wishes for success in the further work for the sake of the progress of the State of Israel," Vucic said.

The president said he wished to see continued cooperation between Serbia and Israel, so that the two countries, as sincere friends and trusted partners, would strengthen economic ties and cooperation in all other areas on the basis of good political relations.

"Let me also, on this occasion, express my gratitude to the State of Israel for its principled attitude to respect the territorial integrity and sovereignty of the Republic of Serbia," Vucic said, referring to Israel's refusal to recognize Kosovo as independent.

"Our nations have shared the same destiny through history, and I believe that, in the years ahead of us, our friendship of many centuries that we are proud of, will become even stronger," the Serbian president concluded.
