Belgrade will not take any action against the interests of Moscow nor impose sanctions on Russia, the president of Serbia, Alexander Vučić , assured. Journalists asked Vučić a question in relation to the policy of Serbia in connection with the adoption of the new sanctions doctrine of the European Union.
“Serbia stands firmly in its line and will maintain and develop traditional best relations with the Russian Federation. Serbia is an independent country and independently makes decisions in the interests of the state and the people,” Vučić said.
At a joint press conference of the Serbian President and Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, the Russian minister added that the pressure of EU partners to conduct an anti-Russian policy “will last a long time.”
Lavrov’s visit between 21 and 23rd February is timed to coincide with the 180th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Russia and Serbia.
Sergei Lavrov, in addition to working meetings, will also visit the Belgrade church of St. Sava, as well as lecture at the University of Belgrade.
The President of Serbia has also written a letter to the family of pilot Filipov, who died in Syria, which Minister Lavrov will pass along.
“I concluded this letter with words about bravery that surprised even the Serbian people.” said Vučić.
