The President of the National Assembly of the Republic of Srpska, Nenad Stevandić, said in Bratislava that the number of Serbs in Slovakia exceeded 18,000, thus clearly indicating the presence and importance of the Serbian community, which has a national minority status in this country.

‘The Association of Serbs in Slovakia is engaged in publishing, organizing exhibitions and other cultural activities. It was really nice to see how many books they managed to publish and how much they nurture Serbian culture and tradition, and how many people are involved in the process of our self-sustainability, originality, mutual respect and existence,’ Stevandić said after yesterday’s meeting with the president of the Association of Serbs in Slovakia, Stane Ribić.

The meeting discussed the status and activities of the Serbian community in Slovakia, announced the office of the President of the National Assembly of Srpska.

During yesterday’s visit to Slovakia, Stevandić also met with the Vice-President of the National Council of Slovakia, Ľuboš Blaha, and the Governor of the Trenčín Region, Jaroslav Baška, and said on that occasion that the relations between Slovaks and Serbs were traditionally good.
