The United States is pushing Serbia to abandon Russian gas

Vucic said that he was required to do so in Washington.


According to EADaily, Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic, who recently returned from the United States, where talks were held with the so-called Prime Minister of Kosovo, Avdulah Hoti, during which an “agreement on economic normalization” was signed, said that under pressure from Vasnigton, Serbia has pledged to diversify sources of gas supply, but refused to commit to importing fuel from certain sources.

“There was a provision that Serbia undertook to buy LNG from the same source. And I said: “People, we will buy the cheapest gas in the market. To oblige our country, which is now richer than it was, but still not rich enough, to buy more gas is not even discussed”, –  said Alexander Vucic on national television.

The President of Serbia added that it makes no sense to pay for more expensive gas instead of Russian gas.
