I reiterated what I always say, and that is that Serbia needs to secure gas supplies from various sources – I spoke about the visit to Azerbaijan, the relations with Russia and the possibility of getting gas supplies from Krk, Croatia, Vucic told reporters late Wednesday after the White House meeting.

The topic was extensively discussed with US gas experts, he said.

My job as the prime minister of Serbia is to secure enough gas for 2019 and 2020, and I am doing that here as well, the prime minister said.

Hopefully we will have ample support from the US, not only as regards our path to the EU, but also as regards gas diversification for Serbia and the Balkans, Vucic said.
