Serbian President Boris Tadić was in Moscow on Sunday for Victory Day celebrations, where he met with his Russian counterpart Dmitry Medvedev and PM Vladimir Putin.
Tadić said after the meetings that there was a mutual desire to continue cooperation between the countries, not only in the political and economic, but also the security sector.
Together with Serbian Foreign Minister Vuk Jeremić, Tadić attended the celebration of the 65th anniversary of victory over fascism in Moscow.
“(At a reception in the Kremlin for delegation members) I spoke with President Medvedev and briefly with Prime Minister Putin. The first impression was that we want to continue cooperation and closeness in all domains, not only in politics and the economy, but security as well,” Tadić said.
He stated that he also talked with Russian Defense Minister Anatoly Serdjukov, as well as all other leaders who attended the reception.
Speaking about the talk with Angela Merkel, Tadić said that he relayed his stand that it would be a disastrous mistake to stop the EU integrations process due to interior problems in the Eurozone.
He specified that he and his European partners had also discussed military cooperation – the possibility of buying products from the military industry.
Leaders from 21 country attended the celebration in Moscow, and mostly the military parade at Red Square.
