Vucic: Serbia is not going to join NATO

The Serbian Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic claimed that no referendum on joining NATO would be conducted in the country, "it's a far-fetched issue".

As Vucic stated in an interview to the RTS TV company, Serbia "is not going to join NATO, it wants to stay militarily neutral". "Serbia did not express a wish to join NATO," Vucic said.

According to him, the law on the confirmation of the agreement between Serbia and NATO, which had kicked up a row, was ratified by the Parliament and signed by the President, but it relates to a "technical agreement", which had been signed as early as in 2006. However, "there was started a hysterical campaign aimed at dividing Serbia, and I will oppose it," the PM noted.

He also pointed out that their policy is that "we love Serbia, we respect Russia, we respect America, we go into the EU, but first of all we love Serbia". Vucic said that he was "not ready to sacrifice the European way of Serbia," as it would be "a catastrophe for the Serbian economy".

Leader of the Serbian People's Party Nenad Popovic claimed on 22 February that opposition parties would demand to carry out a referendum on the country's rapprochement with the NATO, so that "there would be heard the voice of the people who suffered most of all from the NATO".
