Serbia Fiercely Condemns Downing of Malaysian Plane

BELGRADE, July 23, 2014 (BETA) - Serbian Foreign Minister Ivica Dacic stated on July 23 that Serbia condemns the downing of the Malaysian airplane in Ukraine in the fiercest possible manner, and that this tragedy is the consequence of the clashes that have been going on in Ukraine for too long.

"We appeal for maximum effort to be invested as soon as possible and we wish to help as much as possible. The most important thing is that the clashes de-escalate. We demand an absolutely independent investigation [into the plane crash]," Dacic told reporters on Mount Avala.

The minister said that, as for the harmonization of its policy with the foreign policy of the EU, Serbia will certainly harmonize its policy with that of the EU. However, he added that "not even all members of the EU have the same stands on all issues."

"We will conduct a balanced policy, and there will certainly be pressure from different sides," Dacic said.
