Serbian Internal Affairs Minister Aleksandar Vulin said on Monday that the security system is prepared to defend the country and its people in the difficult years to come.
Speaking during a visit to the Gendarmerie base in the southern city of Nis, Vulin said that the coming days, months and years will not be easy and peaceful but that the Serbian security system is prepared to safeguard the country “when evil comes and when our people are in danger”. “The Gendarmerie is prepared and trained to respond to all security challenges and fulfill every order from President Aleksandar Vucic who said clearly that no one can be protected when the state and its integrity and economic stability are being guarded and in the fight against all forms of crime,” the minister is quoted as saying in a press release.
Vulin said that the authorities will do everything to make sure the Gendarmerie is equipped, trained and motivated, adding that the authorities will also make sure they are safe. “I know you are motivated for the job you have chosen because you want to devote your lives to Serbia and the Serb people wherever they face difficulties,” the minister said.
The minister also observed a counter-terrorism and hostage rescue exercise.
