Rare spat between Serbia and Russia after US-brokered deal
(AP Photo/Evan Vucci)BELGRADE A social media post by Russia's Foreign Ministry spokeswoman apparently ridiculing Serbias president after he signed a U.S.-sponsored agreement between Serbia and Kosovo has triggered a rare spat between traditional allies Moscow and Belgrade. Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova posted a photo showing Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic sitting across from U.S. President Donald Trump at his Oval Office in Washington. Zakkharova mocked Vucic in a comment on the Facebook post, saying he was invited to the White House to be interrogated. This president did not say a single bad word against Russia, not even in that place (the White House.) Although formally seeking membership in the European Union, Serbia under Vucic has been forging close political, economic and military ties with Russia and China.
