Convert the PostScript file into PDF with either "ps2pdf" or 
GhostScript, then you can import the file with "externalfigure":

     \startMPpage
         draw externalfigure "belgrade_gm.pdf";
         draw textext.top("One") shifted (264.352, 116.362);
         draw textext.top("Two") shifted (306.821, 186.907);
     \stopMPpage
