Both Josip Broz Tito and Jawaharlal Nehru were founders and prominent members of Non-Aligned Movement, organisation that was founded in Belgrade in 1961. India is still an important member of movement while Serbia became an observer after the Breakup of Yugoslavia.

In context of international relations Serbia considers India to be traditionally friendly country.[1] India has consistently refused to recognise the independence of Kosovo.
