Aleksandar Vucic, Serbia's President, decorated on Wednesday Steve Stivers, the commander of the Ohio National Guard, with the Order of the Serbian Flag of the Second Degree for special merits in developing and strengthening peaceful cooperation and friendly relations between Serbia and the US.

„As a member of the US Congress from Ohio, especially dear and close state to Serbia, Steve Stivers showed tireless commitment and patience to listen, heartily host and support Serbia’s representatives and left an important trace in the US – Serbia relationship while serving as the co-chair of the Serbian Coccus,“ Vucic said.

Stivers said the decoration was a great honour for him and that he was proud of „the work done between the US, Ohia and Serbia.“
„We support Serbia’s membership to the European Union; we know that job is tough, but U know how important it is,“ Stivers said.
