Senator McCain said after talks he had with Serbian Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic on Wednesday said that it had been a very good meeting and he was looking forward to visiting to Serbia and Belgrade.

He said Serbia deserved to be strongly supported by the United States, including investments by U.S. companies and corporations.

Of course that Serbia can count on the support of the United States on its road to Europe, underlined the US senator.

The United States cannot be forcing the EU to do anything, but what it can do is help in other ways, including assistance in diplomatic and economic terms, McCain said.

Prime Minister Vucic expressed his gratitude to Senator McCain for the U.S. support, stressing that the Serbian people appreciated and respected that very much and adding that he hoped that the US senator would be a guest of Serbia’s and Belgrade’s very soon.

McCain also expressed his wish to visit Serbia, although it was not said whether this will take place soon.

McCain voiced support for Prime Minister Vucic’s government and everything it has done so far, but also for Serbia’s EU path, reads a report by the Serbian editorial staff of the official external broadcast institution of the U.S. federal government.
