    Tadić: China is strategic partner


    18 August 2009 | 16:03 | Source: FoNet
    BELGRADE -- Ahead of his trip to China this week, President Boris Tadić says that relations between Belgrade and Beijing "are at the highest level in history".

    Tadić told FoNet news agency in an interview in Belgrade on Tuesday that this will be made official with the signing of a strategic partnership agreement between the two countries.

    Tadić said that his upcoming visit to Beijing will be the third time in the past four years that he has visited China, will further confirm the excellent relations between Serbia and China with an umbrella cooperation agreement.

    The president also stated that he believes ties with China should represent "the fourth pillar" of Serbia's foreign policy.

    “There are many countries waiting in line to sign such an agreement with China, but it will not have its full meaning unless economic cooperation follows. This is why businesspeople and members of the Serbian government who are in the delegation have a very specific job to do,” he said.

    The president said that concrete issues, such as Kosovo, economic cooperation, years of friendship and the principle stance of Serbia regarding one China all helped build a strategic partnership.

    “There is no dilemma that in the next 20-25 years, China will take over a dominant role in some sectors of the economy, and therefore in international policies. This can be useful for Serbia,” Tadić continued.

    The president added that he will be speaking to China officials about possibilities of cooperation in the sectors of infrastructure, IT, pharmaceutical and metal, "and perhaps agriculture".

    Tadic and Hu Jintao:Strategic partership in mutual interest


    13:39 BEIJING, Aug 20 (Tanjug) - Serbian President Boris Tadic and his Chinese counterpart Hu Jintao agreed in Beijing on Thursday that the deepening of traditionally friendly relations and the establishment of strategic partnership represented a joint goal of the two nations and one of their top interests.

    A joint statement issued after the talks specifies that the two presidents reached broad consensus on the further boosting of different fields of cooperation between Serbia and China, as well as on various international and regional issues of mutual importance.

    The collocutors gave their support for the territorial integrity of the two countries, and the Serbian party reiterated its commitment to the policy of one, united China, while the Chinese side underlined once again that it respected the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Serbia.

    Serbia, as it was pointed out, will not establish official relations or have any other kind of official ties with the authorities in Taiwan. Belgrade shall continue to oppose any possible form of Taiwan's independence and it will continue to back the reuniting of China by way of peaceful means.

    China, on the other hand, holds that the best way to resolve the issue of Kosovo status would be to draft a plan which would be acceptable for both parties and which would be achieved through dialogue and negotiations between the Serbian government and the temporary authority in Kosovo, all in keeping with international law and the objectives and the principles of the UN Charter and the resolutions of the Security Council.

    The Chinese party also supports the endeavors the people in Serbia are making on the country's development pathway and it fully understands the problems they are faced with in that respect, it understands the efforts Serbia is making to be admitted into the European family and it appreciates the policy of Serbia that is aimed at the establishment of friendly relations with the neighbouring countries, its efforts to help improve the stability and development of the Balkan region and the cooperation that exists between those countries, it was stated after the meeting.

    Special attention was paid to the possibility of improving further the economic cooperation between the two countries, including the field of trade and investments. An intensification of cooperation was also agreed upon in the domain of culture, education, sports, science, technology, army and the police, as well in the field of tourism, civil aircrafts, health care, media and non-government organisations.

    President Tadic will stay in China from August 20-25, and during the visit he will meet with the top officials of one of the world's biggest economic powers and discuss various

    aspects of bilateral cooperation, with the focus on economic issues.

    Serbian, Chinese relations at highest level


    16:25 BELGRADE, Sep 7 (Tanjug) - Serbian President Boris Tadic conferred Monday with Chinese Defense Minister Liang Guanglie and welcomed the raising of bilateral relations to the highest possible level through the establishment of strategic partnership.

    This has made China one of the four pillars of Serbia's foreign policy, he said.

    Serbia is very interested in intensifying and fostering its economic relations with China, Tadic said, pointing to two important agreements signed recently in China - the agreement on economic and technical cooperation in infrastructure projects and the memorandum on approved tourism destinations.

    Tadic also emphasized his support to the intentification of military and police cooperation and of cooperation in the judiciary, culture, education, sport, science and technology sectors.

    He also congratulated the Chinese defense minister on the 60th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China.

    2010 will mark the 55th anniversary of the establishment of bilateral diplomatic relations, Tadic said quoted by a release from his office.

    Possibly, what does Serbia have that China wants? Russia would make sense for oil pipelines through the Balkans and into Europe, as well as having strategic position in Europe. But what about China?

    BELGRADE, Sept. 7 (Xinhua) -- The defense ministers of Serbia and China said here on Monday that there are big prospects for expanding military cooperation between the two countries.

    Serbian Defense Minister Dragan Sutanovac and his visiting Chinese counterpart General Liang Guanglie told a joint news conference that the two countries cherish their traditional friendship and that military cooperation will further strengthen bilateral ties.

    Sutanovac said this is the first time in 25 years that a Chinese defense minister has made an official visit to Belgrade. The visit has strategic importance following the signing of an agreement of strategic partnership between the two countries during a state visit by Serbian President Boris Tadic to China in August.

    Sutanovac called defense cooperation the best example of all the cooperation between the two countries, which covers cooperation in the areas of military medicine, military training, military economics, military science, as well as peacekeeping operations.

    He reiterated Serbia's support for the one-China policy.

    The two defense ministers also discussed global military challenges such as terrorism, organized crime and other criminal activities.

    "We expressed our mutual desire to cooperate in combating these threats and exchanging information," said Sutanovac.

    Liang said that he and Sutanovac discussed bilateral ties, military cooperation and international relations, and reached wide consensus on issues of mutual concern.

    Liang arrived in Belgrade on Saturday for his four-day official visit.

    China, Serbia pledge to enhance military ties


    BEIJING, Nov. 9 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Defense Minister Liang Guanglie met here Monday with State Secretary of Serbia's Ministry of Defense Igor Jovicic, who is on a week-long visit to China.

       Liang, who is also a state councillor, said traditional friendship of the two countries are deeply rooted in the hearts of the two peoples. The mutual understanding and support between the two nations are constant no matter how the international situation changes. The Chinese side is willing to work with the Serbian side to further push forward bilateral relations.

       He said relations between the two military forces have developed smoothly in recent years and there were frequent high-level visits and fruitful cooperation in profession exchanges and training. With joint efforts of the two sides, the friendship was bound to be further pushed forward.

       Liang visited Serbia this September, which marked the first official visit to Belgrade paid by a Chinese defense minister in 25 years.

       Jovicic said Serbia's military force attaches great importance to developing ties with its Chinese counterpart, and is willing to make continuous efforts to uplift the bilateral military relations to a new height.

       China's development is conducive to safeguarding global and regional peace and stability, said Jovicic.

       China and Serbia established strategic partnership during Serbian President Boris Tadic's state visit to China in August.

    BELGRADE, July 24 (Xinhua) -- The 87th anniversary of the establishment of the Chinese People's Liberation Army was celebrated on Thursday at the Chinese embassy in Belgrade with the presence of Serbian state and military officials and diplomats of other countries.

    In the welcoming speech, Chinese ambassador Li Manchang greeted guests, including Serbian Defence Minister Bratislav Gasic, chief of the general staff of the Serbian Army general Ljubisa Dikovic.

    Chinese military attache in Serbia, senior colonel Wang Haibin, said that Chinese and Serbian armies have a high level of cooperation, with frequent mutual visits and consultations.

    On the occasion of the Chinese Army Day, he said that the Chinese army fulfils its purpose to this day securing unity and safety of its country.

    "At the same time it participates in UN peace missions constantly cooperating with armies across the world and it is dedicated toward maintaining peace in the world," he said on Thursday.

    Serbian Central Bank Starts Accepting Chinese Yuan

    The Chinese yuan keeps gaining a more important role in international economic relations. The National Bank of Serbia is now accepting the yuan in international settlements.

    MOSCOW, January 12 (Sputnik) — The National Bank of Serbia has started accepting China's currency, the yuan, in international settlements, as information on currency quotations published on the bank's web site proved Monday.

    The decision to make and accept transactions in yuan was taken on December 25 during a meeting of the Executive Committee of the National Bank of Serbia.

    "In making this decision, the National Bank of Serbia was driven by the increasing share of trade with China out of all international trade with the Republic of Serbia, as well as by the significant degree of economic cooperation between the two countries," the Serbian Bank said in a statement on December 25.

    Moreover, the Serbian central bank noted that "the yuan has gained a more important role in international economic relations and financial flows."

    Economic relations between China and Serbia have been on the rise recently. In December, Chinese Prime Minister Li Keqiang and his Serbian counterpart Aleksandar Vucic met at the third China-Central and Eastern European (CEE) summit in Belgrade, Serbia. They praised the improving economic cooperation between the states and agreed to further enhance it.

    You should stand with Russia, not china.
    china is a joke.

    In WWII, Japan took the Chinese capital and lost only 2000 soldiers.
    Battle of Nanking - Wikipedia


    The china-vietnam war in 1979 also proved china is joke.

    Only reason for China to invest in Serbia is steel industry that they will inport in Serbia and then sell it around Europe, as in EU i think is not alowed to buy steel from anywhere if its not produced in Europe(not EU but Europe). Military or diplomaticlly China have not single interest in Serbia, as serbia is just some fu*kboy of Germany.
    Not sure how correct i am but for now i roll with this opinion.

    I really do not know who are you my obtuse friend,..but there is no that small nation in history of the whole World with bigger heroic history and deeds that those very Serbs.

    Serbs single-handedly stepped on the line against biggest Empires of their own time:
    1) Byzantium Empire
    2) Ottoman Empire
    3) Austro-Hungarian Empire
    4) Third Reich
    5) NATO

    and make notice, that every and each time, they had to deal with such a strong forces on their own and alone,..far from Russia,..far from any allies

    What wars Serbs "lost":
    -Serbs freed itself and most of Serbia with First Serbian upraising 1805-1835...explained all by eminent German historian Leopold von Ranke 1829 in "Die Serbishe Revolution"
    -From 1876-1879 in TWO Serb-Turkish Wars, Serbs cleaned all of Serbia from Turkish occupiers
    -In the First Balkan War,..Serbs kicked out completely Turks from Balkans and South Europe(or you came to do that?, Martians?, Russians?)
    -In the Second Balkan War,..Serbs kicked out Bulgarians from Macedonia
    *
    -In the FIRST WORLD WAR its was the very Serbs who has broken the very first Front (South European Front at Salonika Greece)
    It was the Serbs who kicked out Magyars from Voivodina, Slavonia(today's Croatia) Banija, Backa, Italians from Dalmatia(Adriatic sea-Croatia now) Italians from Kosovo and whole Albania)
    Austro-Hungarian forces from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Germans from Zagreb and Slovenia,..Turks and Germans from Greece
    In THAT process, my obtuse friend, Serb has lost 60% of all male population from 18-55
    Russian did not come to FREE those lands,..American did not come, French did not come, Brithish, Chinese, Spanish,..NO ONE FOUGHT for Balkan and South of Europe there.
    *****Serbs stretched their domain day AFTER I World War, from Austria on the North to the Salonika Greece at the South, with 1/4 of today's Hungary and 1/3 of today's Bulgaria That was situation second day I World War was finished....*****
    Serbs have freed Slovenians, Croatians, Montenegrins, Bosnians, Macedonians all by themselves. Nations that has been for centuries "horse keepers and boot lickers" to various occupying forces!  
    AND THEY HAVE MADE YUGOSLAVIA!!!!
    _____________what enemy of Serbs said for Serbs__________________________________________---sorry for translation---__________________
    Serbian War Duke Živojin Mišić was one of the most important figures on the Serbian Front at the outbreak of the war and later liberation of Serbia. In the Battle of Kolubara in late 1914, Mišić decisively defeated the overwhelmingly numerically superior Austro-Hungarian forces under the command of Oskar Potiorek. The Austro-Hungarian army was humiliated, while Serbia capitulated only after a coordinated attack of Austro-Hungarian, German and Bulgarian forces in 1915. Mišić withdrew with the Serbian Army through Montenegro and Albania to Greece. After the establishment of the Thessaloniki Front in 1916, he was appointed commander of the First Army and in mid-1918, Chief of Supreme Command. He commanded the Serbian army until the end of the war.

    The Kingdom of Serbia fought against Austro-Hungary and other Central Powers from 28 July 1914, when the Austro-Hungarian government declared war on it, to Austro-Hungary’s capitulation on 3 November 1918. In the first year of the war, Serbia defeated the Austro-Hungarian army in the Balkans. In the following year, its army faced the Triple Invasion. Unwilling to surrender, the Serbian army retreated through Albania. It was evacuated to Corfu, where it rested, armed itself, and reorganised. From there it was transported to the Salonika Front, where it achieved success as early as 1916. After a long period of calm, battles to breach the Front began in September of 1918. The Serbian army set out to breach the Salonika Front. On orders of commander Živojin Mišić: “With unswerving faith and hope, heroes, onwards to the fatherland” – militarily speaking, the army made a breakthrough of the Salonika Front and wrote one of the holiest and most brilliant pages of Serbian military history.

    ********French marshal Franchet d’Espèrey wrote in a report on the breakthrough of the Front to his government: “Operations need to be slowed down as there is no communication to deliver food to advancing French troops; only Serbian troops need no communication, they move like a storm – forward.” Robert Lansing, US Secretary of State, said on the same topic: “When the history of this war is written down, its most glorious chapter will bear the title SERBIA.”**************

    Field Marshal Mackensen: “I have an unusual admiration and love for people from Serbia. You are a heroic nation, full of honor and pride; a nation with a great and brilliant future.”

    Due to the failure of the Austrian Army, relieved of the active service were commander, Gen. Oskar von Potiorek,
    his chief of staff Eduard Belcz and commander of 5-th Austro-Hungarian Army general Liborius Ritter von Frank.
    German Field Marshal Hindenburg comparing warrior skills of Gen. Potiorek and Serbian Duke Putnik, praising Serbian military officer, said:
    "How can donkey be comparable to the lion! '.

    Austrian general Alfred Krauss also held a high opinion of Serbs, which is why he didn’t hesitate to say: “I’d like to use this opportunity to note that we have come to know Serbs as worthy enemies. I considered them, and I consider them still, the strongest of our enemies in the military sense. Undemanding, clever, cunning, particularly mobile, well armed, abundantly supplied with ammunition, skilled at using the land, very well managed, stirred to battle by hate and enthusiasm, they inflicted much more difficulty to our troops than the Russians, Romanians and Italians did.”

    Ernest Denis, a French academic, said:
    "David is broken down Goliath. Serbia had the strength, courage, luck and glory that Austria-Hungary
    inflict one of those terrible blows from which not only was not able to recover, but that stroke shaken the very foundations of the state. "

    Gabriel Mie 1919 g. said the following: "Europe have been saved the Turkish invasion due mainly from Serbs.(referring to 1389 Battle of Kosovo Field when Ottoman came for the whole Europe but stopped on very Balkan by the Serbs)
    They were meat that was going to the slaughter for the sake of others "

    When Bulgaria before that Serbian army surrendered September 29,
    German Emperor Wilhelm II in a telegram could not hide his anger: ,, 62,000 Serbs decided the outcome of the war. Shame!"
    After only a month and a half ago, on 11 November, Germany capitulated.

    German Emperor Wilhelm and Serbia’s as his opponent personified Serbs in his time, said of the Serbian people: “It is a shame that this small nation is not my ally”.

    The new Viennese Greie Presse, a newspaper that waged the most intensive campaign against Serbia, wrote about the Serbian people in 1918: “It will remain a puzzle how the remnants of the Serbian army which managed to escape Mackensen’s army, could later be made fit for battle. It is proof that the Serbian soldier is among the toughest warriors the global conflagration has seen.”

    The Cologne newspaper from 1918 states in the article The Psychology of Retreat: “Few soldiers fought like the Serbian soldier did. He died where he had been ordered to stand his ground.”

    Wilhelm II, German Emperor, to his soldiers said:
    - My heroes, I send you out into a new war against a small, but very brave nation!
    These are the Serbs,.. who were during the three Wars against Turkey, Bulgaria and Austria-Hungary combined, gave the whole World the evidence of their high
    warrior virtue, of military, and the largest capacity which on their flags spayed with blood for these 4 years shoved the World only the largest and most glorious victory "

    Czech author Erwin Kisch, corporal of the Eleventh Regiment of the Ninth Austro-Hungarian Division and participant in the Battle of Kolubara, made an interesting statement: “It was only in Serbia in 1914 that I realized that the freedom of small nations is a force stronger than the violence of the great and powerful ones”, he wrote. “Only here did I understand Chateaubriand when he said that a relentless force – the will, overcomes everything, and that might’s weakness is that it only believes in might.”

    A Japanese professor at the school of medicine in Tokyo, chief of the Japanese Red Cross mission in Paris during the First World War, said in his speech: “Until this war, we, the Japanese, enjoyed the reputation of being the soldiers with the strongest spirit of warrior-ship. This time, we have to admit that the Serbian soldier has taken this primacy from us. Don’t mind, dear Serbs, that we are also slightly jealous of that.”

    The Norwegian colonel Carsten Angel, 1915: “We arrived with little respect for Serbian soldiers, and we return full of admiration. We’ve seen a calm, confident, patriotic people. We have found the best soldiers in the world – brave, obedient, sober, resilient, willing to sacrifice their lives for their country and national idea.”

    French marshal Franchet d’Espèrey also expressed his excitement at the Serbian soldiers’ traits, which is why he asked, almost poetically: “Who are those heroes who can say that they have deserved one of the greatest accolades in the world? They are peasants, almost all of them, they are Serbs, thick-skinned, sober, modest, unbreakable, they are free people, proud of their race and masters of their fields.”

    The great Golgotha of the First World War gave birth to an entire cluster of heroes. Prominent among them is Milunka Savić, as the most decorated female soldier of the Great War.

    -In the II World War,..on the European Continent only Serbs(now called Yugoslavs) had "Free Territories".   Only Yugoslavia in the Balkans retained national independence!
    Yugoslavia - On the 25thMarch 1941 Yugoslavia joined the Tripartite Pact, but two days later an anti-Nazi coup toppled the Government.
    Of all Balkan Nations, only Serbs remained true fighters against Third Reich,..
    Well,..came out AGAIN victorious from that one!


    So my friend, I do not know from what nation you came,..but you know shit about Serbs or you are simply ignorant!

    Serbs are alone, far from Russia, far from its true allies,,surrounded by forever puppet states, never bending never surrendering.

    If your Nation as Serbian Nation has 7-10 million people,..surrounded by all NATO countries, surrounded by Nations who were ALWAYS occupier's "boot lickers" and by that always against you (THE SERB, who were always against any occupying force) ...please pray tell,...would you have that much "BALLS" to stand up against mighty NATO,.....or would you take dawn your underwear and "bend over" ???. I think YOUR nation in that situation WOULD bend over my friend,..Serbs never did!
    You sit there and praise HEROISM,....you are all heroic at the end of the world,..with the back up, with various allies behind, nuclear power...and what not.
    Even Americans can do sh't if there is no behind them British, French, Japanese, Italians etc etc etc
    You are only strong and brave in packs and in huge numbers

    AND FOR YOUR RECORD,...LOOK AT THOSE EMPIRES AT THE VERY FRONT OF THIS POST. THEY ALL FOUGHT AGAINST SERBS, THEY ALL ARE NONEXISTENT NOW (and NATO will be soon! Exactly they undersigned their own demise the same moment when they went against Serbs)
    ALL Armies and ALL Empires who were fought Serbs, perished at the end! It is not for nothing a legend that Serbs are actual "Sky People"(loved by God people)
    Serbs won many battles, lost very few battles in their history,...BUT WON ALL WARS! ...and I mean ...ALL!!!!

    President praises "Socialism with Chinese characteristics"

    President Aleksandar Vucic has praised "Socialism with Chinese characteristics," Beta is reporting, citing his interview for China's Xinhua agency.

    Speaking about the upcoming congress of the the Communist Party of China (CPC), Vucic said the party has "managed to create an impressive model of success that fits China's realities."

    Since the 18th CPC National Congress in 2012, "the specific model that China created so far has shown so many terrific results," he said.

    "Socialism with Chinese characteristics means something very important - that China keeps its independence, its foreign policy and its sovereign state," Vucic said.

    According to the Serbian president, China always makes decisions independently and in accordance with international law, while innovation, reform and modernity have become keywords of its progress and prosperity - "and the CPC has led China to successfully implement a lot of difficult reforms in different fields and different social spheres."

    "The reason for China's achievements and confidence lies in the CPC's strict self-governance, commitment to reform and sustainable development, promotion of Chinese culture, and contribution to the world," he said.

    Vucic also "pointed out that anti-corruption forms the precondition for development and is essential to leading a party of some 89 million members."

    CPC members "symbolize the future of all other people" in China and "need to be a role model to all the others," while the CPC's battle against corruption has given significant strength to the party's leadership to show the nation and the world that "China is very resolute" in the rule of law and in bringing higher living standards to the people, Vucic has been quoted as saying.

    Xinhua added that the president "pointed out that because of the CPC's development plans China has continued its long stretch of impressive growth, registering 6.9 percent in the first half of the year."

    As a result, Europeans' skepticism of the Chinese model has faded away, he noted, and added: "China should stay with something that fits you, that brings you good results, and that is socialism with Chinese characteristics."
