Miloš Minić (Милош Минић) (August 28, 1914 in Preljina village near Čačak, Kingdom of Serbia – September 5, 2003, Belgrade, Serbia-Montenegro) was a Serbian communist politician.

Minić graduated from secondary school in Čačak, then from the University of Belgrade's Law School.

From 1935 he was a member of the then-illegal Young Communist League of Yugoslavia (SKOJ), as well as the Communist Party of Yugoslavia (KPJ), holding senior positions in both organizations. During the Partisans war against Germany and Italy, Minić held both party and military posts from 1941.

After the liberation of Serbia from Nazi occupation, he was the head of Department for the Protection of the People's Belgrade branch, then public prosecutor of Serbia and representative of the military prosecutor of the Yugoslav People's Army (JNA). He then held several posts in the Yugoslavian and Serbian government. He was the Minister for Foreign Affairs of Yugoslavia from December 16, 1972 to May 17, 1978, and during this time signed the Treaty of Osimo which determined the border between Italy and Yugoslavia.
