BELGRADE – Serbia should honour its obligations after purchase of Pantsir-S missile

Peter Stano, the spokesperson of the EU’s High Representative for Foreign and Security Policy, Josep Borrell, told Voice of America (VoA) yesterday.

To progress on its EU path, Serbia should harmonise its foreign policy with that of the EU in accordance with the negotiating framework, he added.

VoA asked Stano to comment on the delivery of the first package of medium-range surface-to-air missile system Pantsir-S, which arrived in Serbia from Russia last Saturday.

“The Serbian government has set EU integration as the state’s strategic priority. We expect Serbia to behave in line with the obligations it has assumed,” Stano stressed.

The purchase of the Russian missile system was agreed between Belgrade and Moscow in October 2019 for an undisclosed amount. According to VoA, the price of a missile system Pantsir S ranges between $13 million and $14.6 million, depending on the version. (
