Serbia has appointed a new ambassador to Somalia, a move to establish first ever diplomatic relations between both countries.
The New Serbian Ambassador, Ivan Zikovic, presented his credentials to the Somali President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud in a ceremony held at the Presidential Palace on Tuesday.
Somalia President Hassan Sheikh Mohamoud said that he hopes both countries cooperate well and ”looks forward to a long and fruitful relationship.”

Ambassador Zikovic said Serbia stands ready to collaborate with Somalia in several development sectors such as education, science, agriculture, vocational training, and health.

Serbia was one of six republics that made up the country of Yugoslavia, which broke up in the 1990s. In Feb. 2003, Serbia and Montenegro were the remaining two republics of rump Yugoslavia, forming a loose federation.
It became a stand-alone sovereign republic in the summer of 2006 after Montenegro voted in a referendum for independence from the Union of Serbia and Montenegro.
