Traditional Serbian Armed Forces Reception

The Guard House, Dom Garde, provided the venue for the traditional New Year and Christmas Holiday reception, which was this year organised jointly by Defence Minister Aleksandar Vulin and Serbian Army Chief-of-Staff General Ljubiša Diković.

Addressing guests at the reception, Defence Minister Vulin noted, “a strong and courageous army that is well-equipped and trained, just like the Army of Serbia, is a guarantor of peace, freedom and independence”.

The reception was attended by top officials of the Serbian Armed Forces and the Ministry of Defence, representatives of the executive branch of the Serbian Government, members of the diplomatic corps and the National Assembly, Serbian Orthodox Patriarch Irinej and representatives of other religious communities, as well as figures from cultural and public life.
