MOSCOW, February 13. /TASS/. Serbia is developing political relations with Russia at a high level and rejects any prospect of joining current international sanctions, ambassador Slavenko Terzic told a news conference on Friday ahead of Serbia's National Day on February 15.

"Relations between the two countries are based on deep friendship between our nations and are developing in a spirit of cooperation and mutual trust," he said, while noting that the level of economic cooperation "could be even higher".

"Trade turnover between the countries has reached $3.4 billion," the diplomat said. "This is not enough. We hope that Russian investments in Serbia will increase. Besides, Russia could buy one of Serbia’s radio or television channels."

Two-way trade could be raised to $5-6 billion, he said, noting last year’s 66% increase in Serbian exports of vegetables, fruit and meat products to Russia.

Military and technical cooperation between Russia and Serbia also "reached its peak in 2014, when joint airborne exercises were held for the first time since World War Two" ,Terzic said. "We expect this trend of active cooperation to continue in all spheres," he said.

Serbia would host an agricultural fair in May-June and Russia was invited as a partner state, the diplomat said. There were also plans for a culture and tourism forum in the autumn, he added.
