BELGRADE – Congratulating Donald Trump on his victory in the US presidential elections, Serbian President Tomislav Nikolic said on Wednesday cooperation between Russia and the US could be expected as a result, as well as a better understanding of Serbia regarding Kosovo-Metohija.

Unless the pre-election rhetoric was false, we can expect cooperation between Russia and the US, and a better understanding of Serbia’s position of non-recognition of the independence of the so-called Kosovo and the position of not joining the sanctions against Russia, Nikolic told Sputnik.

Nikolic said he would request a government analysis of the impact of Trump’s victory on the Serbian economy, investments and foreign debt.

We now have to make additional efforts to establish even better friendly relations with the US, Nikolic noted.
