On April 26, Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic met with Donfried to discuss the Kosovo-Serbia dialogue, Serbia’s European integration and regional co-operation.
Donfried said he had a “fascinating” conversation with President Vucic and Serbian Prime Minister Ana Brnabic.
“Vucic is very clear about where he sees the future of Serbia, and that is the EU.” said Donfried.
Donfried also stressed that “it is very important that Serbia voted to suspend Russia’s membership in the UN Human Rights Council.”
Asked about Russian and Chinese influence in Serbia, Donfried said that Serbia should think about who supports it and who would not want to succeed.
“I think Serbia will have to make important decisions about how to position itself,” Donfried said.
The Prime Minister of Serbia, Ana Brnabiç, stated on April 28 that the officials of the United States of America (USA), who recently visited Belgrade, did not issue ultimatums to Serbia regarding the imposition of sanctions on Russia due to the occupation. of Ukraine.
