Belgrade offered Ukraine assistance in reconstruction.

Belgrade offered Ukraine assistance in reconstruction.

The Serbian authorities and Serbian companies, together with the United States, want to participate in the restoration of Ukraine,  the Minister of Construction, Transport and Infrastructure Goran Vesic said.

A business forum of Serbian and Ukrainian entrepreneurs was held in Belgrade on Friday, organized by the Serbian Chamber of Commerce, the Ukrainian Embassy and the Konrad Adenauer Foundation. Speaking at the event, the head of the Ministry of Construction said that recently, together with the United States, an initiative was put forward for the participation of Serbian construction companies in the restoration of Ukraine.

“The government held a meeting, there was great interest from Serbian companies, there was no company that would not respond to the invitation and that would not want to participate in the meeting and restoration of Ukraine… Better days await Ukraine and the Ukrainian people, days of restoration and prosperity.” , – Tanyug agency quotes Vesic’s statement at the forum.

First Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister of Serbia Ivica Dacic said at the end of August that Prime Minister Ana Brnabic participated in the Crimea Platform summit, but did not sign the declaration, which is unacceptable for Belgrade. Brnabic then expressed support for Kyiv’s European integration and willingness to participate in the post-war reconstruction of Ukraine.

The Serbian authorities officially support the territorial integrity of Ukraine, have previously repeatedly provided humanitarian assistance to Kyiv, but refuse to impose sanctions against Russia.
