OREANDA-NEWS. Serbian President Aleksandr Vucic said that Russian leader Vladimir Putin and Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov apologized to him for the post of official representative of the Ministry, Maria Zakharova, commenting on the visit of the Serbian delegation to the White House.

Vucic told the TV channel RTS about this. “Putin, like Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, never apologized to me for anything. And because of this, both did it. Despite the fact that I myself did not even mention this,” Vucic said.

The President of Serbia announced this after a telephone conversation with Putin. He noted that the incident with Zakharova’s post was insignificant for him, since there are deputies in Serbia who “talk nonsense” about Russia and do not apologize. According to Vucic, the reaction of the Russian authorities showed how much the country respects Serbia and him personally.
