 Speaking to the Greek media, Yee stressed that the US will support Serbia for the EU, only if the latter is 100% committed to this road, as it can not be with Russia and with Europe as well.

"We do not ask Serbia to end its ties with Russia or any other country. However, Russia has a vision of the Balkans that is undoubtedly different from the EU vision (and ours). Serbia should show works and words that support the EU's vision, not that of Russia," Yee said.

He gave an interview published with a specific purpose for the Greek agency ANA-MPA, based in Thessaloniki, as Greece is a country friendly to Serbia.

The US official did not wanted to do this from a country like Albania, Montenegro or Croatia that have a clash with Belgrade, but from Greece who is a member of the EU and has good relations with the Serbs.

Meanwhile the Deputy Assistant Secretary of State, Tillerson repeated the message that Serbia can not sit in two chairs.

Yee, citing Vucic's visit to Moscow, said "Serbia has may like to support the destabilization. Russia's aggressive stances, including the recent vote against the UN resolution on the Russian invasion of the Crimea, have been incompatible with EU policy.

This means they are not in line with Serbia's aspirations in the EU. European and US partners support Serbia, not just in words, but offering assistance, trade and investment to achieve this goal.

This attitude is not new, nor is it a relic of the previous US administration, it is the current American policy. And that is the same message that Serbia again heard from the White House and the State Department during the recent visit by First Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Ivica Dacic,"said the US official.
