The strengthening and improvement of regional cooperation in the Adriatic-Balkan basin, with the aim of accelerating the process of European integration, have been at the centre of the tenth conference of parliamentary speakers of the Adriatic-Ionian Initiative taking place in Belgrade under the rotating chairmanship of Serbia.

The meeting was chaired by Slavica Djukic-Dejanovic, the chair of the Assembly, who is also Serbia's interim President ahead of the election of a new head of state on May 6.

It was decided to further deepen the cooperation among the parliaments of the Adriatic Ionian Initiative particularly through the establishment of parliamentary delegations to the AII.
