LONDON – Serbian Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic has said that he met with over 30 European and world leaders at Thursday’s Syria donor conference in London, but that he did not hear a unified position on a solution to the Syrian crisis, noting that Serbia was shown great respect for its solidarity with refugees.

“We have presented our country in a good way, we helped Syria as much as we could and asked for additional assistance to preserve stability in the Western Balkans,” Vucic told the RTS.

The donor conference raised over USD 10 billion for Syria.

It is a significant amount of money, Vucic said, adding that Serbia was among the countries that pledged the smallest amounts, but also one of the poorest that had the honour of attending the event.

The Balkan migrant route or the possibility of refugees being returned to Serbia were not discussed at the conference, Vucic also said.
