According to Vučić, Western officials insist on offering Serbia to be a member of the military bloc and talk about the alleged Russian threat; the Atlantic Alliance is a challenge to his country’s security.
The Serbian president said they told us to join NATO because Russia would endanger everyone. We cannot join NATO because it intimidates us.
Belgrade followed a policy of military neutrality in 2007 when the National Assembly (Serbian Parliament) adopted a resolution in this respect.
In recent years, the country has conducted joint exercises with the Russian Federation and as well with the European alliance.
