Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic said on May 19 ahead of his meeting with Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babis that he supports neither side in the Czech-Russian diplomatic war over the explosion of the ammunition depot in Vrbetice in the south of the Czech Republic in 2014, for which that country accuses Russian intelligence agents.

“I do not support any position. You are doing your job, they are doing theirs. We are too small to be extending our support to anyone,” the Serbian president said in an interview with the Czech Radio Plus public service.

“I have heard some bits and pieces, I have asked for some information from your ambassador and was delivered some, I’ve read something in the papers, but I am no judge. Who am I to say something about it? It is your task to resolve this, it is your country,” Vucic said.

On May 19 the Serbian president will end his two-day visit to Prague. It is not expected in the Czech Republic that the prime minister will do the same Czech President Milos Zeman did, i.e. apologize for the bombing of Yugoslavia in 1999. Namely, Zeman’s apology was quite personal because he, as the country’s prime minister at the time, allowed the NATO planes to fly on their bombing missions over the Czech territory.
