"I visited Balkans in February. It was a quick but intense mission that allowed me to stop in Serbia and meet with President Aleksandar Vucic, Prime Minister Ana Brnabic and my Serbian counterpart, Foreign Minister Ivica Dacic," he wrote on Facebook.
He added that he had immediately established "good friendship and loyal collaboration" with them.
The Italian minister pointed out that in those days when he visited the Balkan countries, Serbia donated four million protective masks to Italy.
"We will never forget the gesture. The Italian people will not forget who was close to them", Di Maio points out.
Di Maio recalled that Serbia, like other countries in the Balkan Peninsula, has long been striving to join the EU.
"These are the countries we have always been close to, as evidenced by my visit in February," the Italian Minister says.
Di Maio adds that solidarity and friendship are the fundamental European values, which, he said, must open its horizons.
