BELGRADE – Serbia is looking forward to growth of the trade turnover with Russia and is ready to supply “sanctioned” products to Russia, President of Serbia Tomislav Nikolic told TASS in an exclusive interview on Thursday.

The world is now based on the economy, the president said.

“Certainly, Serbia does not measure friendship by the trade turnover volume but its low level with such a big friend as Russia is definitely unnatural,” Nikolic said. “So we should increase the volume of Russian investments to Serbia in this sphere and vice versa,” he added.

“Serbia is ready to offer Russia products not manufactured in the country or substitute products under sanctions,” Nikolic said.

“I see grounds for confirmation of friendship and brotherhood existing between our countries in the economic cooperation,” the President of Serbia said.
