The state has sufficient commodity reserves to meet the needs of citizens, but a problem could arise if the crisis in Ukraine lasts longer and then intervention imports will be needed, President Stevo Pendarovskitold the “Morning Briefing” TV show.
The president stressed that this was exactly what was discussed at yesterday’s Security Council, along with issues related to security aspects.
“The assessments refer to the real facts presented by the prime minister. We are full in commodity reserves. The problem will be if this with Ukraine takes longer. Then we will have to make intervention imports. Serbia has decided not to export vital resources. Not only the prices of oil, but also the prices of grains have gone up on the stock exchanges,” Pendarovski said.
