«Serbia is one of long-standing partners and friends of our country. Krasnodar is glad to develop contacts and interaction at all levels with various cities of Serbia. We are preparing a large programme of cooperation with the city of Belgrade. We strive to make these contacts interesting and useful for the residents of our cities, because we do it all for them», said Anton Smertin.
