Serbian President Tadić to Visit Moscow Before the End of the Year

Filed under: diplomacy,Kosovo,politics,Russian,Serbia — 01varvara @ 00.00

Serbian Ambassador to Russia Jelica Kurjak (1952- ) with President Dmitri Medvedev (1965- ). There will be a Russo-Serb alliance signed later this year… Serbia has probably given up on the EU. Tadić warned the West (and the American neocons) not to mess with Kosovo… they spat on him. They’ll pay the price. Serbs haven’t forgotten ’99 and who their friends were then (and now, too)…


Before the end of this year, Serbian President Boris Tadić will visit Moscow to secure agreement on a “strategic relationship” between the two countries, Serbian Ambassador to Russia Jelica Kurjak said on Ekho Moskvy radio. “I can say that we are preparing for a visit by our president [to Russia] at the end of the year, and that we’re going to sign a declaration on a strategic relationship. I can assure you that the current Serbian leadership has a very good relationship with the Russian leadership, both the prime minister and president “, she said. Ambassador Kurjak told us that the Serbian government doesn’t consider that the secession of Kosovo and the recognition of the independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia are the same. “[The matter of] Kosovo, and [the cases of] Abkhazia and South Ossetia are not the same thing at all. Kosovo is a precedent. Ossetia and Abkhazia are another kind of development, for which we must use different standards. Russia also shares [our position on] these situations, it’s an internal affair, we understand that”, she said. Ambassador Kurjak added, “[Serbia] needs Russian support very much. We are very grateful that Russia supports Serbia’s stance on Kosovo”, RIA-Novosti quoted her as saying.
