Wednesday, September 23, New York - In the framework of the United Nations General Assembly, President of the Republic of Lithuania Dalia Grybauskaitė had a meeting with the President of Serbia Boris Tadic.

Commenting on Serbia's request for support in making agreements with the European Union come into force, the President of Lithuania underlined that Lithuania was upholding the EU stance to make Serbia's further euro-integration conditional on its cooperation with the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia in extraditing persons charged with war crimes.

The Head of State also stressed the importance of developing economic relations with the EU Member States. President Grybauskaitė said to her Serbian counterpart that Lithuania was expecting Serbia to create more favourable conditions for Lithuanian investors already running business in Serbia and currently facing difficulties there.
