Nicosia, Jul 21 (CNA) – Foreign Minister of Serbia and Montenegro, Vuk Draskovic has expressed his country's support to the Cypriot cause for reunification, after talks in Nicosia with his Cypriot counterpart George Iacovou.

The two FMs signed here today two agreements, one on the abolition of visa requirements for holders of diplomatic and service passports and another on the reciprocal promotion and protection of investments.

Iacovou, said that the Cyprus Republic, a full EU member state, supports Serbia's future within the European family, noting that the two countries traditionally maintain friendly relations and the people of Cyprus have exhibited their love and sympathy to Serbia during the country’s suffering.

''Now this country has stood on its feet and we, as members of the EU, support Serbia's future within the European family'', he added.

Iacovou also discussed with Drasckovic the Cyprus problem, as well as problems faced by Serbia and Montenegro, and the issue of Kosovo, European issues and other issues of common interest.

Drasckovic, speaking through an interpreter, congratulated Cyprus for its accession to the European Union and noted that his visit at the dividing line caused him ''mixed feelings of sorrow and anger''.

Responding to a question on reports regarding Serbian capital in Cyprus he said ''we have full faith in the Cypriot justice''.
