Iran, Serbia agree to launch direct flights

Director of the Public Relations Office of Iran's Civil Aviation Organization (CAO) Reza Jafarzadeh announced that Tehran and Belgrade have agreed to launch direct flights between the two countries in the near future.

Jafarzadeh said three Iranian airliners are presently getting ready to launch direct flights between the two countries, reported Fars News Agency.

He noted that the decision comes following the conclusion of an aerial transportation agreement and a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on aviation cooperation between the two countries.

In a relevant development in February 2017, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and Serbian Deputy Foreign Minister Ivica Dacic in a meeting in Margarita Island, Venezuela, underlined the need for further expansion of mutual cooperation.

During the meeting on the sidelines of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) meeting in Venezuela, Zarif and Dacic explored avenues for bolstering and reinvigorating bilateral ties in different areas.

"The Islamic Republic of Iran considers no limit for the expansion of relations with Serbia," Zarif said.

The Serbian deputy foreign minister, for his part, said that his country is eager to broaden ties with Iran.
