Aleksandar Vucic Joe Biden Serbia

Visits Belgrade amid protest

16 Aug, 2016

Biden arrives in Belgrade for a one-day visit. He expresses his condolences for NATO military action, before walking with Prime Minister Vucic in a picturesque borough of Belgrade, under high security.

I’d like to express my condolences to the families of those whose lives were lost in the wars of the 1990s, including those killed as a consequence of the NATO air strikes.

Hundreds of Serbian ultra-nationalists protest the visit by chanting their support for Donald Trump, as they gather near the Serbian presidency building. Protestor:

Trump is the alternative to globalisation. He will destroy old centres of power in the United States and he is a supporter of Russia.

After visiting Serbia, Biden will travel to Kosovo to encourage both countries to do more to normalize their relations.
