Serbia : Serbs in Austria Are Important Element of Society.

Austrian Vice Chancellor Heinz-Christian Strache said in Belgrade on Feb. 12 that the Serbian-Austrian friendship should further be deepened, adding that the Serbs living in Austria were an important element of Austrian society. Speaking at a joint news conference with Serbian Foreign Minister Ivica Dacic, Strache said that more than 260,000 people with largely Serb roots and holding Austrian citizenship lived in Austria. "The second largest group in Austria is the Serb Diaspora. The Serbs are not only a part of society, but also an important element of society," he said.

Strache further said that he and Dacic had also discussed economic relations, stressing that Austrian companies had invested EUR2.3 billion in Serbia. "It is important for me to see the Serbian-Austrian friendship revived and deepened," he said. Strache also said that the meeting with Dacic had also touched on border protection, particularly in relation to the closing of the so-called Balkan route, noting that it was important that Austria "does not leave Serbia in the lurch."
