During meeting of Foreign minister Mohamed Kamel Amr and Vuk Jeremic was stressed the importance Egypt attaches to activating the role of the UN General Assembly, being the supreme legislative body of the international organization, and restoring its role in keeping international peace and security, set in the Charter, despite Security Council attempts to weaken its mandate in this regard.

The meeting also elaborated the efforts of reforming and expanding the membership of the Security Council.

Also discussed were the Egyptian efforts to holding an international conference on a Middle East free of nuclear weapons and weapons of mass destruction, where Amr expressed Egypt’s persistence on holding the conference and rejecting the pretexts put forward to justify not convening it, thus representing a breach of the decision of the NPT member states conference held on 2010.
SERBIAN PARLIAMENT APPROVES NEW GOVERNMENT
LED BY IVICA DAČIĆ
The cabinet of Prime
Minister Ivica Dačić
was elected by the Serbian parliament in Belgrade in July 27, 2012 with
votes in favor.
The new prime minister and
his cabinet took the oath of office to the sounds of the national
anthem and in
the presence of a ceremonial guard.
The new government has 17 ministries and four offices for Kosovo and Metohija, human and minority rights, churches and religious communities, and the Diaspora.
It has a total of 19 members, including four deputy prime ministers, and will be the smallest the country has seen this side of 1990.
Serbia's new PM and leader of the Socialists (SPS) Ivica Dačić for the past four years served as a deputy PM and interior minister in the previous government led by the Democrats (DS) who today joined the opposition.
No changes in Serbia’s foreign policy
According to Mrkić, major changes in foreign policy are not customary in stable democracies such as Serbia. "For the most part, we will continue with the same foreign policy. It is also clear from the statements of President Tomislav Nikolic and Prime Minister Ivica Dačić, when they spoke about foreign policy, that there is no change in course," he said.
"There will certainly be some minor modifications due to the fact we have a new president, a new parliament and a new government," Mrkić said.
Asked about his view of the current relations with Moscow and Washington and what he would insist on in the future, Mrkić said Serbia had "extremely good relations" with Russia, and wanted to further and deepen its existing solid partnership with Washington. "We are in a strategic partnership and Russia is an important partner and ally to Serbia, which helps us preserve our territorial integrity," said Mrkić.
At the same time, Belgrade will endeavor to make its relationship with the United States "as wellthought out, diverse and fruitful as possible for both sides." "We will have a better idea of ways to further our relations after we meet with U.S. officials, and we will know more specifics in the coming days and weeks," said Mrkić.
Talking about future contacts with EU officials aimed at accelerating Serbia's EU integration, Mrkić recalled that "there is intensive communication with all representatives and allies from Europe." "There will be meetings with senior officials in Brussels, the arrangements are being made and we will have communication as intensive as our predecessors did, if not more so," he added.
