BELGRADE – Serbia backs China over Hong Kong

In a letter sent to his Chinese counterpart, Serbian President Aleksandar Vučić wrote that Serbia supports China’s sovereignty, territorial integrity and national security. The president had sent the letter in connection with the national security law pertaining to the special administrative region of Hong Kong, which the Chinese parliament adopted last week, the Belgrade daily Politika reported on Wednesday (3 June).

“As an independent country, Serbia is against any interference with internal affairs of a sovereign country,” Vučić wrote.

The Serbian president pointed out that “Serbia and China are committed to respecting international law globally” and that Serbia “condemns any attempts at undermining the reunification” of that country.

The Serbian president also wished China and the people of China “further progress” under the leadership of President Xi Jinping.
