The President of Belarus, Alexander Lukashenko, has stated that in almost every meeting with the President of Russia, Vladimir Putin, he talks about the Balkans, thus about Serbia.
“The situation in the Balkans is often the topic of our meetings with Russian President Vladimir Putin,” Lukashenko said during a meeting with the chairman of the parliamentary friendship group with Belarus in the Serbian Parliament, Dragomir Karic.
He added that Serbia was and remains the stronghold of the Slavs in the Balkans.
“I have to tell you that I talk about the Balkans in almost every meeting with President Putin. And who do we have in the Balkans? That’s right, we have Serbia. It has always been a stronghold of the Slavs in the Balkans. It is still today. We often talk about the problems you are facing. We are committed to a very good cooperation,” said the Belarusian head of state.
According to the Belarusian news agency Belta, during the meeting with Karic, Lukashenko stated that the President of Serbia, Aleksandar Vucic, was aware of this and recalled the last meeting between Vucic and Putin in Sochi.
“Putin highly values the people he can count on. We often talk about Serbia,” he added.
