Republic of Serbia and United Arab Emirates are celebrating 50 years of intensive and friendly relations. Half a century of uninterrupted relations testify to the constant progress, which was especially intensified in 2012, when visits were exchanged at the highest state level. Since then, relations between the two countries have begun to develop rapidly in all segments, especially in the field of economy and culture, and numerous bilateral agreements and memoranda of understanding and cooperation in areas of common interest have been signed.
Given the still current pandemic of the Covid-19 virus, it is necessary to point out the very intensive cooperation between the two countries in the fight against this globally present virus. The selfless people and the leadership of the United Arab Emirates have on several occasions sent aid to the Republic of Serbia in the form of donations of medical devices, protective equipment, as well as the recently established cooperation on the production of vaccines in the Republic of Serbia.
In line with these exceptional ties between the two countries, the Post of the Republic of Serbia decided to mark this golden jubilee by issuing the commemorative postage stamps titled ”Serbia – United Arab Emirates: 50 Years of Friendship”, which will symbolically and graphically present this cooperation and friendly bonds between the two nations.
