European Integration Minister says Serbia isn’t closing eyes to Ukraine

June 22, 2022

Minister for European Integration Jadranka Joksimovic said on Wednesday that Serbia has not closed its eyes to events in Ukraine and is aware of demands to impose sanctions on Russia.

Speaking at the opening of the exhibition Applied Nostalgia: Belgrade-Paris, Joksimovic said that Belgrade won’t open Cluster 3 (competitiveness and inclusive growth) in its accession talks with the European Union because it hasn’t imposed sanctions on Moscow even though it is prepared to open it.

According to Joksimovic, two nations friendly to Serbia are at war in Ukraine, adding that Belgrade is on the side of international law and is showing humanity and empathy with the people of Ukraine.
The exhibition of photographs was made by Serbian photographer Nemanja Maras who took pictures of Paris and French artist Laure Maugeais who took pictures of Belgrade. The project sends Serbian photographers to EU Presidency capitals and brings photographers from EU Presidency states to Serbia.
