U.S. assistant secretary of state in visit to Serbia

U.S. Assistant Secretary of State Philip Gordon met on Wednesday in Belgrade with Serbia’s Foreign Minister Vuk Jeremić.

Gordon started his tour of the Balkans in Bosnia-Herzegovina and will also visit Priština, and then Croatia by June 17.

In Sarajevo, the high-level American official spoke at a conference entitled “The Western Balkans: Progress, Stagnation or Regression?”, and met with High Representative for Bosnia-Herzegovina Valentin Inzko and Bosnian officials.

During his visit to the Balkans, Gordon will “underscore the support of the United States for all the countries of the Western Balkans as they build prosperous, peaceful, and democratic societies on their way toward their rightful places as full members of the European and Euro-Atlantic community,” the State Department said in an earlier statement.
