Serbian President Aleksandar Vučić said today that the evening before the introduction of sanctions against Aleksandar Vulin, he received the most explicit advice from an official that this will not happen if he at least announces sanctions against Russia, reports Tanjug.
“If the evening before the (US Ministry of Finance) brought sanctions against Alexander Vulin, I had not officially introduced the sanctions but only announced them, or mentioned that there would be changes in policy, as I was told, there would have been no sanctions against Vulin, and I kept silent,” said the Serbian president in a guest appearance on Prva TV .
When asked from which official he received such advice, Vučić said that it is not being said.
‘Vulin is a fair man’
“That’s what I was told in the most explicit, simplest way, I kept silent,” said Vučić.
“And I have no problem with that, my politics will not be guided by that, Aleksandar Vulin is a fair man, but if the country was in danger, I would tell him to resign,” said Vučić.
He added that he does not want any individual to be in front of the state’s policy, and whether the state will be threatened at some point and, as he says, we will have to change the policy, he said, he does not know.
Vučić asked: “What should I do (on the occasion of such a message) to kneel and beg for mercy in order to stay in power longer”, and assessed that such a thing cannot happen, reports Beta.
“For 11 years now, here in the public, they say that I came to power because I promised foreigners that I would do something. That’s how little Đokica imagines politics,” Vučić said.
