THE PRESIDENT of Serbia, Aleksandar Vučić, addresses the public from New York, where he is participating in the work of the 77th United Nations General Assembly.
President Vučić spoke about the meeting with Džejk Sullivan, Joe Biden’s national security adviser, and said that it was not the last meeting today.
– This was probably one of the most important meetings so far, some say that he is the most important man in the USA. The meeting lasted for a long time, we also talked about the economy, political issues, Serbia’s aspirations in the region, Kosovo. It is not easy to agree on certain issues. The conversation was open and honest, and when such a conversation is held, it must always bring some benefit – he said.
Vučić says that Sullivan is the future of American politics, and he is in such a position that he decides on key issues in the world.
– We searched all the questions. I spoke about Serbia’s position, and we agreed to jointly strengthen economic activity between Serbia and the USA. We are both satisfied that Rivian is coming to Serbia. When one Jake Sullivan knows that Rivian is coming to Serbia, it means something – the president said.
He adds that Sullivan knew a lot more about what the president said before the UN, and points out that he is a man of great intelligence and extremely informed.
– And I rarely say that. I discussed respect for territorial integrity with the President of Iran, Ebrahim Raisi. The meeting lasted about 20 minutes. We will also have a meeting with Guinea-Bissau and Niger, perhaps the president of the Congo. Tonight we also have the World Economic Forum, I believe that Dmitro Kuleba, Saudi and many other leaders will be there – says Vučić.
The President points out that the duties will only be completed tomorrow around 1 or 2 pm American time, and then he will return to Belgrade.
Vučić said that he also informed Salivan about our attitude towards cooperation with China and their investments in Železar.
– I’m saying what I always say. I didn’t hide anything from the UN podium either. I and Mr. Wang Yi had a good and cordial conversation, we always will. I think it is important to preserve our position and good relations with the People’s Republic of China – he says.
The president pointed out that it does not mean much that more people saw his speech than the speech of the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskiy.
– He is the center of attention now. I don’t think he personally is happy about it. My speech attracted attention because it was different, because someone small dared to tell the truth. The heads of missions of some of the most important countries approached me last night to congratulate me. They came out of the hall to wait for me, congratulate me, and say that they haven’t heard this in the last 10 years.
