“I’ve planted a lot of trees in my life, but this sapling is one I’ll always remember,” said Serbian President Tomislav Nikolić as he planted an olive tree at a ceremony held in Jerusalem’s Grove of Nations on April 29th, 2013. President Nikolić is the 62nd head of state to plant an olive tree in the grove in the Jerusalem Forest. He joins other leaders from all over the world who have planted trees here in recent years as an expression of friendship between nations. KKL

After the ceremony, before the Serbian entourage moved on to the next stage of its official visit to Israel, President Nikolić promised those present: “In the future our two nations will have the opportunity to pick plenty of fruit together.”
