Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic thanked for the EU's assistance during the corona virus pandemic and called on members of the European People's Party (EPP) to show solidarity, his office announced on May 6.
Vucic participated in the May 6 video-conference summit of EU and Western Balkans' leaders from the ranks of the European People's Party (EPP) about the fight against the corona virus and the Western Balkans' European prospects.
Vucic informed the participants of the summit about the economic situation in Serbia and details of aid to the countries of the region and the EU during the pandemic, and thanked for all the aid that Serbia has received.
Speaking about Serbia's disappointment with the lack of solidarity at the start of the pandemic, Vucic pointed out that "action is more important than words" and that "Serbia has also proven that it belongs in the EU by sending aid to the EU countries and to the region alike." He also called on the EPP members to show more mutual solidarity.
The president of the EPP, Donald Tusk, said that he understood the dissatisfaction of certain members with the lack of the European Union's solidarity during the pandemic, but that there was also "a lot of misinformation aimed at dividing us."
