BELGRADE – The Serbian government must maintain its present course and its results are visible, says former US ambassador to Serbia William Montgomery.

Montgomery also believes that the West is not trying to weaken Serbian Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic.

The West is definitely not giving up on Vucic – on the contrary: the reality of the Serbian political scene today is that, in any case, there is no real alternative to Vucic, Montgomery said in an interview to Tanjug.

If anyone was to assess the results achieved by the Serbian government, they would see a dynamism and activity unseen in the past ten years and many positive steps, Montgomery said.

This is reflected by incentives for foreign investments, efforts aimed at reconciliation with neighbours, as well as strong efforts to control public spending and cooperate with the IMF and the World Bank, he said.
