Mexico and Serbia have always shared the basic values of freedom, national integrity and equality among peoples and states. The commemorative stamp edition entitled ”75 years of diplomatic relations between Serbia and Mexico” has been issued in celebration of 75 years of uninterrupted diplomatic relations between Mexico and Serbia. In 2021 two friendly countries joined in celebrating the anniversary of diplomatic links formalized on May 24th 1946.
During the historic events that led to the consolidation of Serbia as the successor nation of the former Yugoslavia, Mexico always has remained close to the people of Serbia. In fact, since Mexico opened its embassy in Belgrade in 1951, it has never closed its doors. At no time were official and social links ever suspended with the people of Serbia. Mexico has sustained its stand on the respect of the territorial integrity and sovereignty of the people of Serbia until present day. The high-level political dialogue and the cultural and academic exchanges developed during 75 years has built a strong foundation of friendship and cooperation between the two countries based upon the social dimension of their bilateral agenda.
In celebrating the first 75 years of diplomatic relations, Mexico and Serbia have ratified their willingness to deepen their links, confronting the challenges in context of the pandemic COVID-19, and to advance the bilateral cooperation to consolidate a new stage of prosperous relations for both nations in the globalized world of the 21st century. The strong friendship between the two nations will remain as the engine of a new era between the Mexican and Serbian people.
