THE PRESIDENT of Serbia, Aleksandar Vučić, stated today that the price of gas is of exceptional importance for our country and citizens.
During his address to the public, Vučić pointed out that if the price of gas from Russia is $ 500 per 1,000 cubic meters, it will mean an annual direct loss for our country of 600 million euros.
– If we have a price of 300 dollars per 1,000 cubic meters, and we need three billion cubic meters of gas annually, and if we get a price of 500 which is significantly better than the price on the stock exchange, that is a direct 600 million euro loss for our country. on an annual level – Vučić explained.
The president points out that this will indirectly mean a loss of more than a billion euros, because with that price, Serbia will not be able to attract investors.
As he explained, the operating costs of the companies will be higher, which will affect inflation, and will additionally pull the price of electricity.
Vučić states that for these reasons he is nervous before tomorrow’s meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, although, as he says, he has good and friendly relations with him.
– But, I have a responsibility for the country and I will fight, I will fight for the interests of our country and I will ask him to meet us. I know what I will ask of him and I am not sure that I would have accepted it in his place. From there, there is fear, but I will fight and pray, I will pray for my country and people – said Vučić.
