Serbian President Alexander Vučić, commenting on Croatian media reports on June 27 said that Croatia has the right to arm itself while Serbia’s task is to ensure the security of its own sky, RIA Novosti news agency reported.
“If they have money and a healthy economy, let them arm themselves”, said Serbian President Vučić commenting on Zagreb’s plans, reported in Croatian media, to acquire a fighter squadron.
President Vučić wished Zagreb “good luck,” noting that Serbia’s task is to ensure the safety of its citizens and remain protected.
Earlier, the Serbian president said that his country needed to have two battalions of anti-aircraft missile systems S-300. Their purchase is negotiated with Russia and Belarus. In addition to long-range air defense, Serbia has plans to purchase the Buk M3, medium-range air defense systems, in order to respond to Croatia equipping its aircraft with ballistic missiles.
