After Serbia and Montenegro dissolved their union peacefully, the constituents took separate ways as two independent countries. President Srdjan Spasojevic, Vice-President Borivoje Zaric and Grandmaster Aleksandar Matanovic were the members of the Serbian delegation, which welcomed the FIDE President.
