Also discussed was the current security situation in the region and Kosovo-Metohija, the Serbian Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement.
Dacic noted that the adoption of the IPAP has been the most significant qualitatative step in Serbia-NATO relations since Serbia’s entry into the PfP and that the country is very committed to its implementation, the statement said.
Serbia stands by its position of military neutrality but recognises the significant room that exists for further improvement of the partnership within the PfP and it has a major role in preserving regional security and stability, he said.
Speaking about the very good cooperation with KFOR, Dacic urged its undiminished presence in Kosovo-Metohija and particularly noted the significance of the role of NATO/KFOR as a guarantor of security and the implementation of the Brussels Agreement.
