He stated that the Serbian Armed Forces are capable of protecting our integrity, and every metre of our country, and that they guarantee that they will recognise and counter every asymmetric threat no matter where it comes from.

The peace-loving policy of stability led by the President of the Republic of Serbia and Supreme Commander of the Serbian Armed Forces Aleksandar Vučić is strongly supported by the Serbian Armed Forces. Strong and secure Serbian Armed Forces are the guarantee of a strong and secure Serbia, and without peaceful, stable and secure Serbia there cannot be the peaceful and stable Balkans – Minister Vulin said and thanked the Prime Minister and all the members of the Government for great understanding which they had showed when it came to the need to improve the standard off the members of the Serbian Armed Forces.
- I would like to thank the President of the Republic of Serbia for the great investments in the Serbian Armed Forces, since it allowed us to be able to match any armed force in the surroundings. The Serbian Armed Forces is capable of preserving the territorial integrity and sovereignty of the state of Serbia – Minister of Defence pointed out.
The Prime Minister of the Government, Ana Brnbić thanked all the citizens of Subotica who came that day to attend the celebration to mark the first year of the work of the Government.
-I wish to thank Ministers Vulin and Stefanović for having done everything they could so that the security services could be more present among the people, among the citizens, by which we wanted to symbolically show you that we are your Government, that we are the Government that works for you, to provide for you, to make your lives better – the Prime Minister of the Government said.

Speaking about the construction of flats for the members of security services she underlined that she was pleased that the Law on the construction of flats for the members of security forces had been adopted and that the first phase of the flats construction would start by September.

Minister Stefanović said that the Ministry of Interior was always with its citizens and not only on that day.
-I do not differentiate between the work of the Police and the Armed Forces. Minister Vulin and I always appear together, because we defend the same country and the same people. Our task is complex, and in some areas it is different, but it is important for the people to know that both the armed forces and police are a single system of defence and security which protects our Serbia and all the people of this country – said Minister Stefanović and added that he was proud of that year of the work of Ana Brnabić’s Government, and of what the Ministry of Interior achieved in that period.
