NSC’s Spokesman On John Bolton’s Visit To Serbia: “Nothing to announce at this time”

NSC’s Spokesman Garrett Marquis makes a comment on emerging news reports about John Bolton’s prospective visit to Belgrade and Pristina.

Washington, DC ( The Pavlovic Today) — The media outlets in Serbia reported for the past two days that the US National Security Advisor, Ambassador John Bolton, will visit Serbia in the fall. National daily “Blic” published a story stating that Bolton might pay a visit to Pristina and Belgrade in a move to resolve the Kosovo issue and open a dialog between the Serbs and Albanians. 

Garrett Marquis, Deputy Assistant to the President and the Spokesman of National Security Council at The White House told the Chief White House Correspondent, Ksenija Pavlovic McAteer of The Pavlovic Today, that, regarding Bolton’s visit to Serbia, the National Security Council (NSC) has “nothing to announce at this time.”

This indicates that Ambassador Bolton may visit Serbia since the NSC did not rule it out. During the tenure of Gen. H.R. McMaster in the role of the US National Security Advisor, the NSC looked at the Balkans as a point of strategic interest, specifically regarding the containment of the growing influence of Russia in that region. 

While the U.S. foreign and security policy is focusing the most on the situation in Venezuela and Maduro’s regime, the Balkans is still relevant from the geopolitical standpoint and an area where the U.S. foreign and security policy could achieve great multilateral success. Bolton’s visit to Serbia is definitely a foreign policy development worth watching in the weeks to come.
