Serbia refuses to abandon Russia because of EU

The Serbian President Tomislav Nikolic met with the US Vice President Joseph Biden in Belgrade on Tuesday. The dialogue between Biden and Nikolic was held behind closed doors. It's content was revealed by the President's press service late at night.

Nicolic claimed that the country would not impose sanctions on Russia, even if it's required by the EU foreign policy. He also noted that despite the fact that there is no 'better option for the Serbian citizens than way to the European Union,' he is not ready to sign an interstate document with the self-declared Republic of Kosovo.

Biden in his turn pointed out that 'the US does not expect Serbia to make a choice between it and Russia' and supports Serbia in its way to European integration. Biden also had a conversation with the PM Aleksandar Vucic in Belgrade, after which the US Vice President set off for Prisitina.
