You cannot conclude based on allegations on the cancellation of a presidential visit that the foreign policy of a global superpower has changed, especially because there is no reason now why Russian President Vladimir Putin should visit Serbia, former Serbian ambassador to Moscow Jelica Kurjak has said.
Kurjak told BETA, that the public possessed scant information on this, except for releases from the office of Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic. Even though she said, "that does not mean that we don't believe him, there is still no information to explain why Putin is coming, what the reason for that is."
"If you have stable, friendly, traditional and useful relations with a country, then it is natural that the presidents will frequently see each other, but not as frequently as between Russia and Serbia. When the president of a country does come on a visit, that either has to do with some emergency or a new economic, political and military project, or the visit is merely a regular visit, but not all the time," Kurjak said.
