Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic says his country wants good and trust-based relations with Russia and is not going to cancel his visit to Russia amidst the alleged spy scandal.
Axar.az reports citing TASS.
"No, we don’t think about it," he said in an interview with Germany’s Der Spiegel.
"We want good and trust-based relations [with Russia]," he stressed.
Serbia is "an independent state and it will be able to defend its military neutrality," he said. "We are taking the current situation responsibly and seriously."
"We have been friendly nations for a long time," Vucic emphasized. "Serbia is ready for good relations and we hope Russia is ready for that as well."
He reiterated that the "strategic goal" of his country was movement towards the European Union but Belgrade also wanted to have good relations with Russia and China.
Serbia "has clear and transparent relations with Russia," he noted. "The Russians don’t give us anything for free but they give us a good price."
