Highness Crown Prince Aleksandar II, Princess Katarina and Prince Philip
hosted a reception last night at the Royal Palace in Belgrade for more that
hundred full and corresponding members of the Academies of sciences and arts
of Serbia, Montenegro and the Republic of Srpska.
Prince Aleksandar II welcomed all those present and expressed his pleasure
for gathering of “so many knowledge, gifts and skills at one place”.
“Ladies and Gentlemen, you were elected by your peers to be part of the history of your Nation and pride of your people. Today, perhaps more than ever before, your knowledge and your work represent both hope and support. First, because those elected to be immortal do not aspire for ephemeral aims, second - because knowledge is a fundament of every right decision and a landmark in the infinite search for the truth.”
In the name of those present,
