Er staan Čedomir Radojković (rechts op het plaatje) zware tijden te wachten aan de Groot Hertoginnelaan in Den Haag. Hieronder een verslagje dat Radio Srbija uitzond over een ontmoeting van de nieuwe Servische ambassadeur in Nederland met de Naradno Skupština Republike Srbije, het parlement hier in Belgrado . Een boel gedoe over de uitlevering van Mladić, verwacht hij en daar zou hij best eens gelijk in kunnen hebben. Maar hij voorziet ook goede contacten met politiek, bedrijfsleven en media in het land van tulpen en molens. Dat wekt verwachtingen.
The newly-appointed Serbian ambassador to The Netherlands, Čedomir Radojković, is aware his task will not be easy at all. The Netherlands is the country which, at this moment, is obstructing Serbia’s EU integrations most, by insisting on the arrest and the extradition of the remaining Hague indictees and a positive report of Chief Prosecutor Serge Brammertz on official Belgrade’s cooperation. However, economic cooperation between the two countries is on the rise and there is mutual interest in its further promotion. The new ambassador has had talks with 45 business delegations and visited several firms interested in cooperation with The Netherlands. The land of tulips and windmills is also the seat of most international courts, such as the Hague Tribunal and the International Court of Justice, which is to provide its opinion on legality of the self-proclamation of independence of Kosovo in the territory of the southern Serbian province. The ambassador also stated as one of his priorities the establishment of good contacts with all the politically relevant factors in that country, primarily at the governmental and ministerial levels, and parliamentary cooperation. What is also very important is cooperation with media, which can lead to the change of Serbia’s image in the Dutch public. It is also necessary to extend legal assistance to Serbian citizens tried at the Hague Tribunal and to work on the further expansion of cultural ties, he said.
