Britain has demanded that Serbia expel Russian diplomats as part of the collective measures of a number of Western countries due to the case of the Skripal poisoning. Such a statement was made by the head of the Serbian Foreign Ministry, Ivica Dacic. A reminder that Serbia is not part of the EU.
“Serbia will not expel Russian diplomats, we want good relations with Russia, it is true that during the events in Kosovo last week the UK demanded from us to decide on the attitude towards the Russians and to expel Russian diplomats, which shows that they were only concerned about this, other issues did not bother them, “- quotes the Serbian diplomat.
The Foreign Minister stressed that Belgrade should take care of its interests, weigh them up well, and “it is absolutely certain that Serbia will not expel Russian diplomats.”
Serbia is isolated in terms of not being part of the EU- but Austria is one of the only EU countries who refused to expel the Foreign Ministry staff of Russia from their country.
