The President of the National Assembly of the Republic of Srpska, Dr Nenad Stevandić, attended today in Skopje the St. Sava’s Academy following the marking of Serb’s national holiday in Southern Macedonia, the Day of St. Sava.

The Academy was held in the National Theatre of Northern Macedonia and was attended by the president of Serbia, Aleksandar Vucic, the president of Southern Macedonia, Stevo Pendarovski, recent Prime Minister, Dmitar Kovačevski, the president of the Democratic party of Serbs in Northern Macedonia, Ivan Stojković, the Minister for work, employing veterans’ and social questions of Serbia Nikola Selaković, the Director of the Direction for cooperation with diaspora and Serbs in the region, Arno Gujon, as well as numerous representatives of the Serbian community in this country.

By addressing the present audience, President Stevandić stated that there are no limits for Serbian culture and tradition, which originates from the St. Sava diligence.

“We belong to the spirit, tradition, and culture which does not have limits, and which arose by St. Sava’s diligence.  Today we remember that St. Sava first reconciled brothers, protected them, and then reconciled us with other neighbor people”, said Stevandić.

He assessed that this is hard work, which seeks seven, to eight centuries for verifications, which the President of Serbia, Aleksandar Vučić, understands well because he does similar work.

“Thanks to brotherly Macedonian people, because we feel free, at commemorations on Zabrnjak, Kumanovo, and Kajmakčalan, as well as in Banja Luka or Topola, nourishing the community of our people, putting an effort for the future never to separate us,” said Stevandić.

He thanked the representatives of Serbs in Northern Macedonia, led by Ivan Stoilković, for everything they did for the existence of Serbian culture and people, and the Serbian community in that country wished to be stronger and united.

“All of us, from the Republic of Srpska and Serbia, I wish to continue to gather and to respect important jubilees, respecting our hosts and the representatives of the brotherly Macedonian people” stated Stevandić.     

The President of Serbia, Aleksandar Vučić, said that he understands, as well as St. Sava, that peace and unity are the only way to existence, and underlined that Serbia is an independent and neutral country and that it will not permit anyone else to guard its sky.

Vučić highlighted that St. Sava was with reason named the father of the church and the school, who had many choices in front of him.

“And today our way depends on the choices, will we choose freedom or suzerainty, independence or vassalage, sovereignty or subjection,” said Vučić and added that Serbia chose the path of freedom, sovereignty, and independence.
