"This has nothing to do with reality," Dacic said after talks with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov. “I signed the agreement on this centre with my friend Sergei Shoigu. It's a good thing having nothing to do with West saying it's a military base,” Dacic said.
“Then a question arose if this center has any regional powers. It has no such powers in the essence of being a replacement for any other European mechanisms. The center's staff will work in other countries only if these countries wish that,” he said.
