BELGRADE – Serbian President Tomislav Nikolic wished on Friday a very happy Easter to Patriarch Irinej, priests and monks, and all believers celebrating this religious holiday.

“Over the holiday celebrating the resurrection of Jesus, may our prayers be dedicated to the peace, health and prosperity of our families.

We should remember our friends, the frail and vulnerable, our compatriots in Kosovo-Metohija, and focus our thoughts on the progress of our fatherland, Serbia, and the wellbeing of every man, regardless of their religious affiliation.

May the strength of our country lie in our solidarity, understanding and love,” the president’s press office quoted him as saying in his Easter message.
