BELGRADE - Survival of Serbia's rural regions is crucial for the country and an important national and security issue, Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic said Thursday at the constitutive session of a national team tasked with a recovery of Serbia's rural regions.

He announced support to all measures to be introduced by the body in the future.

"For Serbia, rural regions are of crucial significance and we will back everything you come up with to do," Vucic said at the ceremonial session, adding that the government was now much more capable of helping rural development thanks to the state of the country's finances and economic development.

However, we will waste much money that way because you cannot stop people from living in cities, Vucic said.

But the efforts will pay off if the measures are at least a 20-30 pct success and if people remain in the rural regions, he said.
