Dear visitor,
Dear Canadian friends,
Dear fellow compatriots,

I proudly accepted the diplomatic mission of the Ambassador of the Republic of Serbia in Canada as a professional and personal challenge. It is an honour to serve in a G7/G8 country, country that is a pillar of the democratic and free world, pioneers of the multiculturalism, six times a UN SC non-permanent member, whose global economic presence and political engagement within the international community is widely recognized.
Both countries, Serbia and Canada fought side by side as allies in WWI and WWII. We were on the right side of the history, paid a terrible price and suffered huge human and material losses.  Nowadays, challenges remain the same.
Today, Serbia is fulfilling her role of a leader in advocating stability in the Western Balkans and South-Eastern Europe and is at the same time giving her contribution to the world peace by participating in six UN and two EU peacekeeping and international missions.

With a clear 2020 full EU membership agenda which comprises structural, political and economic reforms, as well as deep changes in the Serbian society, we are striving to transform our potentials into the capacities.

Serbian economy is recovering slowly but steadily and recent car export from Serbia to Canada by Zastava-Fiat within the Fiat-Chrysler merging project, is balancing our economic and trade exchange. On the other hand, a number of Canadian investors are already present in Serbia, especially in the sectors of  Canadian excellence - mining, energy and agriculture, well respected for their expertise as well as business integrity. It is my task to make them more numerous.
I am also proud to salute you on behalf of more than 150 000 members strong (and still growing!) Serbian community in Canada. Opportunity or difficult times has brought them here. A fair chance of success for hardworking people and an open hearted society has made them stay. They are among you or your first neighbours. 

Dear friends,

History has made us allies.
Modern day world and globalization has made us neighbours.
Mutual interest has made us partners.
Let the future seal it.

Long live Serbia! Long live Canada!

His Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston

Presentation of Letters of Credence (Serbia, Chile, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Chad, Cambodia)
Rideau Hall, Friday, June 27, 2014

I am delighted to welcome all of you to Rideau Hall and to Canada, as you take on your new roles in the diplomatic community.
It is difficult to overstate the importance of diplomacy in today’s hyper-connected world.
As heads of mission, you are an integral part of the friendship that exists between Canada and your respective countries. Even in this age of instant, global communication, there is no substitute for meeting in person to discuss important issues—or for simply talking to one another and learning about each other’s cultures and nationalities.Ambassador Papazoglu, allow me to offer you my congratulations on this, your first assignment as head of mission. I am certain that your wealth of diplomatic experience will serve you well here in Canada, as will your fluency in English and French. I hope that you will be able to find ways of sharing your knowledge of Serbian culture with Canadians—and I am certain you will find us an eager and receptive audience.

I would also like to extend my sympathies and best wishes to you, and to the people of Serbia, as you deal with the effects of the severe flooding in your country. Please know that Canada’s thoughts are with Serbia and the Serbian people during this difficult time. The strong people-to-people ties that exist between Canada and Serbia form the basis of our cultural, educational and economic relationships, and I look forward to continuing these relationships in the years to come.
