Parliament Speaker Ivica Dacic said in Moscow on Monday that Serbia will never support sanctions against Russia.

“I want to say once again that Serbia will never support the sanctions against the Russian Federation imposed by international organizations or certain states,” he said. Dacic is in Moscow at the invitation of State Duma Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin.

A press release on the State Duma web site said that they discussed high level, dynamic cooperation between the two countries. “We remain committed to further developing brotherly relations,” Dacic is quoted as saying.

Volodin is quoted as saying that Belgrade and Moscow share views on some issues and added that interference in the internal affairs of sovereign states is impermissible especially in terms of imposing values.
