As it was announced from the Office for Media Relations of the president of the Republic of Serbia, Vučić expressed his sincere regret over the situation in Ukraine and informed Ambassador Tolkach about the positions of the Government of the Republic of Serbia and the National Security Council.
He emphasized that Serbia is committed to respecting the principles of territorial integrity and sovereignty of states, as one of the basic principles of international law contained in the United Nations Charter, and that in that sense it respects the territorial integrity of Ukraine.
He emphasized that Serbia is also exposed to the unprincipled position of one part of the world when it comes to the unilateral declaration of independence of the so-called Kosovo, and thanked Ukraine for respecting the territorial integrity of Serbia. President Vučić pointed out that Serbia provided the best possible conditions for civilians, refugees from Ukraine, as well as all rights to residence and work permits, in accordance with the rules of the European Union, even at a higher level. President Vučić announced that he would soon visit Ukrainian refugees in our country with Ambassador Tolkach. Ambassador Tolkach thanked for the humanitarian aid that Serbia provides to endangered Ukrainian civilians, as well as for the financial aid. President Vučić announced that Serbia will participate in the reconstruction of cities in Ukraine. President Vučić emphasized that Serbia and Ukraine have opportunities to develop cooperation in various spheres of mutual interest, and stressed the need to continue working on strengthening economic relations as soon as the situation allows.
The President reiterated that Serbia, in accordance with its consistent policy, is committed to the peaceful settlement of disputes, and in that sense supports all efforts aimed at negotiations.
