The condolence telegram, among other things, says: "It was with sadness and disbelief that I received the news of the tragic death of Shinzo Abe, an exceptional statesman and man, who, with his serious and responsible approach to the political challenges of his time, left a special legacy on the global political scene."
"Shinzo Abe made an immeasurable contribution to the development of relations between Serbia and Japan, which is why we were honored to award him the Order of the Republic of Serbia on a ribbon, for outstanding services in developing and strengthening peaceful cooperation and friendly relations between our two countries. On behalf of the citizens of the Republic of Serbia and me personally, I express my deepest condolences to the people and the Government of Japan, the family and friends of Shinzo Abe," said the President of Serbia.
