BELGRADE – Serbian PM Aleksandar Vucic has reiterated US Senator John McCain had not requested that Serbia recognise Kosovo or impose sanctions on Russia, Tanjug reports.

In an interview with Happy TV late Monday, Vučić said McCain – who visited Belgrade earlier in the day – was a very influential person and a good friend of many important people in the US.

Vučić said they had a decent conversation that was good for Serbia.

“He did not request anything, and we talked about everything. That is not the way to talk to Serbia, because I have said on several occasions that we will not impose sanctions on Russia, that we are militarily neutral, that we are on the European path and that Serbia was proud of the policy of military neutrality. That independence is something many do not like,” Vučić explained.
