NIS, September 24 (Itar-Tass) - It will take several months for the Russian-Serbian Humanitarian Centre in Nis, southern Serbia, to start its large-scale activity, Serbian Prime Minister Ivica Dacic said after talks with Russian Emergencies Minister Vladimir Puchkov on Tuesday.
“The Serbian government keeps a close watch on how the Russian-Serbian Humanitarian Centre is taking shape,” he said. “We are glad that the formal part of dialogue related to the centre’s legal registration is close to completion.”
“Next week the Serbian government will discuss this problem,” he told a news conference. “We set the task of completing all procedures to finally open the Russian-Serbian Humanitarian Centre.”
The centre will deploy firefighting planes, rescue and mine-clearing equipment, food reserves, medicines, blankets to provide rapid response to emergencies.
“Both Russian and Serbian citizens will work there and this will yield positive results for both sides,” Dacic said adding that the centre would provide assistance not only to Serbia, but also to neighbouring countries.
