Srdjan Cvijic, President of the International Advisory Committee of the Belgrade Centre for Security Policy, officially closed the Belgrade Security Conference. During his speech, Srdjan referred to the student protest in 1996 and 1997 where students carried a banner with the slogan ”Belgrade is the world”.  

‘’In the time where we face a regime that doesn’t accept nor allow criticism and the culture of dialogue, we held our first Belgrade Security Conference, and Belgrade was yet again the world’’, said Cvijic.  

Summarizing the main points of the conference, he stated that the Ukraine war is an imperialistic war of the dictatorial Russia against a democratic Ukraine. He thanked Ukrainians for coming to the Belgrade Security Conference and for their courage and defiance. He also thanks free women and men of Russia and Belarus, who facing a great danger back home accepted to address the conference.  

With the words ”This is not the end but merely a beginning” Srdjan Cvijic officially closed the Belgrade Security Conference.
