The Minister of Construction, Transport and Infrastructure of Serbia, Zorana Mihajlovic, has talked to the new Ambassador of Bosnia and Herzegovina to the Republic of Serbia, Aida Smajic, with the main topic of the meeting being joint infrastructural projects.

She said that the most important project for the two countries was to build the Belgrade-Sarajevo highway, which will be built as a ring road, connecting the two countries along two routes, it is said on the website of the Ministry of Construction.
– The works on the construction of the first section, Sremska Raca-Kuzmin, have already begun and we expect the construction site to be visited by the presidents of Serbia and Turkey and the chairman of the Presidency of B&H during the visit of the Turkish president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, to Serbia. The project-technical documentation is being prepared for the second section, from Pozega to Kotroman – Mihajlovic said.
