PODGORICA – Serbia and Montenegro have put all former differences and political disputes aside and turned to the future, Serbian First Deputy Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic said in an interview with Montenegrin Radio and Television, Tanjug reported.
Vucic said that Serbia and Montenegro will support each another on the EU integration pathway with the expectation that both countries will join the EU within a few years.
As for the upcoming visits of Serbian Prime Minister Ivica Dacic to Podgorica and Montenegrin Prime Minister Milo Djukanovic to Belgrade, Vucic views them as an opportunity to agree on cooperation on concrete projects, particularly in the fields of traffic and energy.
Vucic said that all Serbian authorities are working on the arrest of drug lord Darko Saric who is still at large.
Vucic said that he is surprised by accusations coming from Nebojsa Medojevic, an official of the Montenegrin opposition party Democratic Front, that he and Dacic are protecting Saric, and that he is a member of the Balkan criminal confederation.
Vucic said that he has never seen or talked to Saric, and for the reason he is not sure what Medojevic was talking about.
Vucic said that he is afraid that some people are trying to ruin relations between Serbia and Montenegro for their own political interests, adding that they receive money from certain tycoons.
“Whether this money comes from (Miroslav) Miskovic or someone else, I cannot say with certainty at the moment, but I know that it is difficult to find any other motive for such a story,” Vucic said.
As the president of the Serbian Progressive Party (SNS), Vucic said that the SNS has very good relations in Montenegro with New Serb Democracy and good relations with the Democratic Party of Socialists.
