Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni said that it is important for Rome that the Western Balkans join the European family and that Serbia has a strategic importance for Italy.

- I talked with Meloni about all regional issues and Serbia's European path and I am grateful to the Prime Minister of Italy for Italy's essential and persistent support for Serbia's European path, and I am especially grateful to Meloni for always wanting to hear our opinion, to listen what Serbia has to say, and that there is no unilateral approach to the problems in the region - said Vucic.

Regarding economic cooperation, Vucic expressed hope that in the future it could be much higher, especially when "Stelantis starts to produce the electric "panda" in Kragujevac".

- The company "Stelantis" can, in addition to the production of the "panda", a new electric vehicle, be a generator of new investments in the automotive industry - said Vucic.
