Prime Minister Ana Brnabic said in Moscow on Friday that Serbia’s desire to join the European Union is not an obstacle to stronger ties with Russia.

Speaking at the Made in Russia export forum, Brnabic said that Moscow is Belgrade’s key partner in terms of energy stability and sustainable development as well as environmental protection, adding that “trust among partners is the best basis for cooperation”. She also called Russian companies to work with their Serbian counterparts and exchange innovative solutions.

According to Brnabic, Serbia has managed to achieve political and economic stability after several lost decades, transforming its economy, launching digitalization and increasing the innovation budget 10 times.
