We would like to congratulate you on your election as President of Serbia, confirming the strong support you enjoy among the population of your country. This vote of confidence shows that the people of Serbia fully endorse the European path you have chosen and which will lead to EU membership. 

We wish you success in further pursuing this path by promoting the reforms associated with the ongoing accession process which will bring a better life to all citizens. Stable and functioning institutions, the rule of law, and the fight against corruption are crucial for further positive economic developments. We are confident that you will continue to promote cooperation and reconciliation in the region, essential for stability, peace and prosperity. Your determination will also be key to continue the progress in the EU facilitated Dialogue between Belgrade and Pristina. 

We would like to reiterate the European Union's full support for Serbia's European reform agenda and look forward to working with you in the future as President of Serbia.
