Selakovic announces: After support from US congressmen, Serbia is preparing new diplomatic actions
I am convinced that there will soon be good and positive surprises for our entire public. The letter of support from the congressmen shows that some things can really be changed when you work seriously, diligently and with dedication," stressed the head of Serbian diplomacy, Nikola Selakovic
Foreign Minister Nikola Selakovic has stressed that the fact 16 congressmen have sent a letter of support to Serbia to US President Joseph Biden has caused unease in Pristina, but that this will not be the end to Serbia's diplomatic efforts to improve relations with the United States.
Half of the signatories of this letter have significant influence on the US foreign policy, of which as many as seven of those who supported Serbia are members of the very important Congressional Foreign Policy Committee, which makes recommendations, declarations and resolutions for setting Washington's diplomatic course. These are Claudia Tenney, who is also the co-chair of the Serbian Caucus, Brian Fitzpatrick, Greg Steube and Brad Schneider, as well as David Cicilline, Dan Meuser and Ted Lieu.
In addition to them, the letter was initialed by members of two other very important committees - Military (Congressmen Mike Turner and Marc Veasey,) and Intelligence (Eric Swalwell and Brad Wenstrup). Among the congressmen who supported Serbia are other members of the Serbian Caucus: Emanuel Cleaver, Gus Bilirakis, David McKinley, Bill Johnson and Frank Mirvan.
According to the head of Serbian diplomacy, so far the unwritten rule has been that Albanian lobbyists have had a great influence on the Capitol Hill, especially in the Foreign Policy Committee, where anti-Serbian resolutions and declarations often came from. This significant change in the balance of support in the place where US foreign policy is being created is the result of the work of our diplomacy, cooperation and good relations created by President Aleksandar Vucic, Foreign Minister Nikola Selakovic and our country's ambassador to the US Marko Djuric, who spoke with each of the signatories.
"I am convinced that there will soon be good and positive surprises for our entire public. The letter of support from the congressman shows that some things can really be changed when you work seriously, diligently and with dedication. Improving relations with the United States remains one of our foreign policy priorities, and changing those relations requires serious energy and work. Such things don't happen overnight, our diplomacy will invest even more in those relations in the future," Selakovic told Novosti.
