According to a Beta news agency report, Dačić said that "an official reaction" would be sent to these countries.

"One of them is Albania," he noted while attending the Serbian Economic Summit organized in Belgrade by Greece's TGI Group.

According to him, Albania failed to send a telegram of condolences to Serbia, while none of its officials signed the book of condolences - "not to mention any assistance."

Dačić then confirmed that a donor conference for Serbia and Bosnia-Herzegovina would be held in mid-July, and mentioned July 16 as a possible date.

He also revealed that by June 20, Serbia's diplomatic missions abroad had collected nearly 2,000 tons of various goods as part of the flood relief effort, and specified that the value of these donations exceeded EUR 25 million.
