Ministry of Defense of Serbia

Serbia thanks Austria for flood rescue

The Defence Minister for Serbia has thanked Austria for their help evacuating people from the flood affected areas in the country by quickly deploying personnel

As well as 77 firemen, Austria also deployed 17 trucks and six boats to help with the rescue operation. Defence Minister Bratislav Gašić met with Austria's ambassador to Serbia, Johannes Eigner, and said in a statement that thanks were extended to those who have been sending humanitarian aid from Austria.

Serbs who live in Austria, Austrian citizens of Serb descent, and other people of good will have also been sending humanitarian aid, the ministry said in a statement.

The Minister also met the Russian Ambassador Aleksandr Chepurin and thanked him for his country's quick response to the flood disaster.

"Russia was the first came to our aid and 73 brave Russian rescuers, including 20 divers, were saving those whose lives were threatened in Obrenovac only three hours after landing in Niš," he said.
