Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic told reporters on Monday that the Tirana Declaration has nothing to do with sanctions.

“That was a regional initiative in Tirana and had nothing to do with sanctions,” he said commenting the fact that the countries of the Adriatic Ionian Initiative, including Serbia, adopted a declaration which said that Russia’s invasion of Ukraine is illegal and unjustified aggression.

Vucic said that Serbia has not changed its state policies and added that Belgrade is under pressure because of that. He denied claims that the authorities would try to hide anything about the sanctions against Russia. “We will maintain our policies for as long as we can and when we can’t we will tell the people why we can’t if it comes to that,” he said.
