Historic relations

Russia and Serbia have an strong diplomatic relationship, dating from WW II . Many people, outside Europe, some even in Europe - which is quite an embarrassment - think that Serbia is an former Russian republic. No! Absolutely, not. Serbia, haven't even been under Russian administration - anytime in history, as Poland, Hungary, Czechoslovakia( today's Czech Republic and Slovakia) and Romania ... were.

Words of support to international integration plan and to Kosovo politic

But, since I've been cooperating with him in past few years, I would ask You to say hello to him, and to pass my best wishes to him in future work. " - Putin said.

"You are very popular and welcome in Serbia, and You deserved that with Your politics in Russia and the way You ran it." - Nikolic has noticed.

"I assure You that cooperation between Serbia and Russia will go progressive! Also, I assure You that You can see Serbia as an partner on Balkan" - President Nikolic said to Putin.

"Serbia is on its way to European Union. That is far and uncertain route. We will form country under the standards and laws that exist in EU." - Nikolic stated, and added : "...I haven't heard so far that there is a demand from EU for recognition of Kosovo as independent country."

"If there is such a demand from EU, than we are unwilling to continue our integration to EU, and we would stop dialogue with EU immediately. " - Nikolic added to press question about his politics to towards to Kosovo.
