BELGRADE, March 28. /TASS/. Russia is concerned by tensions in the Balkans, Serbian Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic told Pink TV channel on Monday after talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow.
"I told him there’s a permanent danger and permanent pressure inside many countries in the region and there is a doubtless presence of various external factors, which exert different influences and pursue different interests," Vucic said.
"Serbia has managed to get over certain elements of instability and it was the most stable country in the region until recently," he said. "I think they are very, very much concerned."
