Putin said that Russia will continue supporting Serbia and its territorial integrity, as well as any mutually acceptable solution reached by Pristina and Belgrade. He added that Russia advocates stabilization of situation in the Balkans and development of mutually beneficial relations with all Balkan countries. Russian President also emphasized that new projects in field of energy will be launched in Serbia and noted that Russia considers possible Serbia’s participation in the ‘Turkish Stream’ project.
Vucic thanked Putin for the assistance that Russia provides to Serbia and told the joint press conference that Russia deserves most credits for preventing Serb people to be labeled as genocidal by invoking veto against United Kingdom’s Resolution on Srebrenica before the UN Security Council (UN SC). Following the meeting, Putin and Vucic also signed a number of agreements on cooperation, mostly related to economy.
