BELGRADE, July 31, 21:09 /ITAR-TASS/. Serbian President Tomislav Nikolic said on Thursday that Serbia should in no way join sanctions against Russia because that would be pernicious for the country.
The Serbian president said in an interview with the Informer newspaper that he did not intend to interfere in questions that were in the government’s competence, including foreign policy, but believed that Serbia “should not join sanctions against any country, including Russia.”
Nikolic said the imposition of sanctions against Russia could have unpredictable political consequences for Serbia. “It will lose its pillar of support at the United Nations and destroy the fraternal relations between the two peoples for which our forefathers fought,” Nikolic warned.
“In addition to that, the internal peace and stability would also come under threat. The economic damage which no one would have compensated to us would be measured in hundreds of millions of euros a year,” the Serbian president said.
