“We will impose no sanctions on Russia,” he said, noting that the question hasn't evgen been raised.
“Our policy is determined clearly as a policy of military and political neutrality, we will insist on this,” he added.
The diplomat noted that Serbia once also sufered from Western sanctions which Russia also supported. “But we understand that those steps did not reflect the real opinion of Russian people,” he said.
Last week, Johannes Hahn, the EU Commissioner for Neighbourhood Policy and Enlargement Negotiations, said Serbia should bring its foreign political position in line with the European stance by imposing anti-Russian economic sanctions.
Meanwhile, both Serbian President Tomislav Nikolic and Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic said that Serbia would not impose sanctions on Russia despite its goal to join the European Union. Nikolic, however, admitted that the EU membership which Serbia was seeking implies an obligation to pursue a common foreign policy.
Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Alexander Lukashevich said last Thursday Moscow hopes that Serbia will remember the friendly nature of relations with Russia when it makes a decision whether it should join the EU sanctions against Russia.
