He said that we are facing big and difficult decisions - whether we will have peace and stability. "Please perform your duty diligently and responsibly. Thank you for everything you have done in the past five years. Now comes the difficult five years, it is not easy to maintain peace and stability, but with such soldiers and aware citizens who know there is no greater value than freedom, I am convinced that we will preserve peace, stability and freedom. Long live the Serbian Army," said President Vučić, who then entered the building on Andrićev venac.
