Şentop had a tete-a-tete with Ivica Dacic, Speaker of the National Assembly of Serbia and afterwards a meeting between delegations was held.
At the meeting held between delegations, Şentop told that he is pleased to host Dacic and the accompanying delegation at the GNAT and that he wishes this meeting to be an opportunity to accelerate international relations which have declined to a great extent due to the pandemic.
Şentop reminded that Dacic is a statesman who has had marks on Serbian politics as Minister of Internal Affairs, Minister of Foreign Affairs, Prime Minister, Deputy Prime Minister and now as the Speaker of the National Assembly, “We are glad to observe that our relations have reached the highest level under the guidance of our Presidents. I know that you personally have made great contributions to this success which has been achieved with a ‘win-win’ principle.”
Şentop said, “I attach importance to establishing relations that have been deepened on all levels, between our parliaments. Relations between our parliaments, especially between our friendship groups and committees would provide an opportunity for our peoples to get to know each other better and to benefit more from advantages generated by our common values.”
Şentop told that he had visited Belgrade two years ago to attend the 141st General Assembly of Interparliamentary Union on Speakers’ level, “My family roots are based in former Yugoslavia. My father’s family had migrated from the Gevgelija region of Northern Macedonia to Turkey in 1926. I believe that these meetings are a kind of family visit.”
