Clinton arrived here from Bosnia, for meetings with top Serbian state officials, and first met with Serbian President Boris Tadić.

Speaking at a joint news conference after the meeting, Tadić stated that Clinton's visit was the second visit by a high-profile U.S. official to Serbia, which allows the two countries to build their relations on a new basis.

He pointed out that the challenges Serbia is currently facing are such that the country needs partnerships and cooperation with the biggest powers like the U.S.

The Serbian president recalled that this is the second in line of bilateral visits after the visit of U.S. Vice-President Joseph Biden, which according to him shows that after a number of years of misunderstanding and poor communication, Serbia is finally building relations with the U.S. on new foundations.

Tadić also said that he confirmed Serbia's determination to build a strategic partnership with the U.S. during his meeting with Clinton, adding that "Serbia also wishes to close the chapter on its dark past by arresting war crimes indictees Ratko Mladić and Goran Hadžić"...............................
