Serbian Prime Minister Ana Brnabic said that the opposition’s presidential candidate Zdravko Ponos made contradictory statements about NATO and the country’s military neutrality.

“Ponos tried to lie, making two contradictory statements in the space of 24 hours – NATO never say never followed by military neutrality,” she said speaking on the Hit Tvit live talk show on the pro-regime TV Pink. She added that Ponos and the United Serbia coalition backing him should get the votes of the people who want Serbia integrated into NATO and are in favor of parliament adopted a resolution on the genocide in Srebrenica.

“Zdravko Ponos is a NATO general and I don’t mean that either positively or negatively but as a fact as confirmed by Wikileaks documents,” Brnabic said showing what she claimed were Wikileaks documents.

She said that she knows that Serbia did not have a military in 2013-14 even though she is no military expert. “I don’t think that was by accident. If the reform of the military was done in the interest of NATO, foreign services and embassies as I think they were, then the reforms were successful,” she said.
