Speaking at a promotion ceremony for the youngest class of officers of Serbia’s armed forces, President Aleksandar Vucic said on Saturday that Serbia is successfully leading a European policy but also successfully cooperating with Russia, China and the US, and above all, maintaining and leading a policy of peace in the Balkans.

Serbia’s military is “rebuilding its force with great speed” and it is prepared to protect the border and prevent any attack on the Serb people “wherever they might be endangered,” he said.

“Today you are taking over the most honourable duty, the duty of defending your people. You proudly stand before your heroic forefathers, ready and decisively facing the future. You are the echelon of the freedom and the sovereignty of our homeland, you are the sons of freedom which has another name, Serbia. You are the guarantee of a peaceful future for Serbian citizens,” Vucic said at the ceremony.

He added that in the current conditions, where there are attempts to revise history and turn the perpetrators into the victims.

“Serbia today maintains a culture of remembering and with its people in Montenegro, Republika Srpska and Croatia, we mark the suffering in Jasenovac, Donja Gradina, we mark the expulsions of the innocent Serb people in the 1990’s of the 20th century,” he said.
