Vuk Jeremic to preside over the UN General Assembly

Vuk Jeremic, the outgoing Serbian Foreign Minister, has become the first Serb to preside over the UN General Assembly.

Representatives of the UN member states have elected Vuk Jeremic of the Democratic Party in Serbia as president of the UN General Assembly.

Hundred and ninety countries voted and he got 99 votes.

“We are a small developing country that does not belong to any military alliance and it is a great honour for us to get such a huge support,” Jeremic said.

Jeremic, who has been a frequent guest at the UN General Assembly opposing Kosovo’s independence in 2008, will be heading the Assembly for the next year.
