Serbian leader warns of imminent global war — RT World News



Aleksandar Vucic only sees the West’s relations with Russia and China escalating

The world is headed for a major conflict not seen since 1945, Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic warned Tuesday, after the first day of the United Nations General Assembly session in New York. Small countries cannot expect any good news to come, Vucic added.

“You see crises everywhere in the world,” Vucic told Serbian state broadcaster RTS, noting that United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres made gloomy predictions during his keynote speech at UNGA.

“I think the actual predictions should be even darker,” Vucic said. “Our position is even worse, because the UN has been weakened and the major powers have taken over and practically destroyed the UN order for decades.”

When asked about Russian President Putin’s upcoming speech, Vucic said it is not difficult to predict its generalization.

I assume that we are moving away from the stage of special military operations and into a major armed conflict, and now the question becomes where the line is, and whether after a certain time – maybe a month or two, we’ll be entering a major world conflict not seen since the Second World War.

“For all of us small [countries] who just want to be secure and provide safety to our citizens, there is no good or easy news. I expect everything in the future to involve more complicated relations between the West and Russia, as well as between the West and China,” The President of Serbia added.

Vucic himself plans to speak to the country next week, to inform the Serbs about “Important decision” his government intends to do.

Serbia has come under tremendous pressure from the EU and NATO to impose sanctions against Russia and sided with the West, but Vucic has persisted in remaining neutral while insisting that Belgrade has a goal enter the EU at some point in the future. Brussels has told Belgrade that a prerequisite for that is recognition of the breakaway province of Kosovo, however, Vucic has to swear never to do.

Russia and China are among the half of the world’s governments that do not recognize Kosovo, which was occupied by NATO in 1999 and declared a state in 2008 with US backing.
