Greetings to Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic

    Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko has sent greetings to Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic as the country celebrates Statehood Day.

    “Throughout its centuries-long history your country has not once become an object of harsh external pressure. You, like no one else, know perfectly well that only with mutual respect and trust, with each other's support in the international arena, our states can protect their sovereignty and respond to modern challenges to go confidently forward,” the message of greetings reads.

    The President emphasized that the Belarusians have always, even in the most difficult moments, helped the brotherly Serbian people. The two nations share common spiritual and cultural values.

    “I believe that Serbia will remain a reliable partner of Belarus in the Balkans. Minsk looks forward to strengthening friendly relations with Belgrade, deepening bilateral contacts and expanding cooperation at all levels and in all areas of mutual interest,” said the head of state.

    Alexander Lukashenko wished Aleksandar Vucic and the Serbian people strong health, fruitful activity and every success.
