Letter from the U.S. Secretary of State
President of the Republic of Serbia Aleksandar Vučić received a letter today from the U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo which reads as follows:
„Dear Mr. President:
As governments around the world seek to protect their own citizens from the COVID-19 pandemic, I want to convey my deep appreciation to you and the Government of Serbia for your assistance to citizens of the United States in their time of need. By providing the opportunity to U.S. citizens in Serbia to return to the United States on a Serbian government-chartered Air Serbia flight on 26th March, you allowed 64 U.S. citizens to return to their homes and families during what is an uncertain and challenging time for us all.
I also want to commend both Air Serbia personnel and the authorities at the Belgrade Nikola Tesla Airport for the support they provided to organize the flight on such short notice and for the heroism and compassion they demonstrated to the passengers on board.
On behalf of the United States, I thank you for your support and friendship during these difficult times, when the strength of our bilateral relationship truly stands out. I look forward to the day when this pandemic has passed and we can continue to work together to build a more prosperous future for our people“, reads the letter of the U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.
