Ross, Chinese Minister of Agriculture Han Changfu including Foreign Ministers of Spain, Chile, Peru, Bolivia and other high-ranking officials from political, economic and cultural life of Peru and the region.

Vice-President and Foreign Minister of Panama Isabel de Saint de Alvarado in a friendly encounter with First Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs Ivica Dacic highly commended the presence of the delegation of the Republic of Serbia at the inauguration ceremony for the new President of Panama, emphasizing that it was yet another confirmation of Serbia's commitment to building friendly relations with Panama, a country with which there was a tradition of good cooperation dating back to the times of former Yugoslavia.
