US Ambassador to Belgrade Christopher Hill on Monday demanded an explanation from Serbia in connection with the plan of consultations between the Serbian and Russian Foreign Ministries signed on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly.
“Of course, we would like to hear an explanation of what this document is. During this UN session, the United States had good negotiations with Serbia, we heard about this document only after that and we are waiting for an explanation on it,” Hill said.
Earlier, Serbian Prime Minister Ana Brnabic said that the republic was under strong pressure from the European Union (EU) after the speech of President Aleksandar Vucic at the UN General Assembly. The pressure has also increased due to the signing of a plan of consultations between the Ministries of Foreign Affairs of Serbia and Russia, which does not even have legal force yet, since it was not accepted by the Serbian government.
Serbia’s foreign policy envisages joining the European Union while maintaining friendly relations with Russia and China, as well as developing ties with the United States. Belgrade intends to maintain military neutrality, refusing to join NATO and other military-political blocs.
