Will Russia and Serbia sign a full defence treaty?
Are Russia and Serbia close to signing a defence treaty? We have been speculating for some days that Russia might offer a security guarantee to Serbia, but could Moscow and Belgrade go one stage further and sign a full blown treaty? If not, then why all this speculation that Russia may station missiles on Serbian territory? Obviously, Serbia would want something out of that arrangement, and a pledge from Russia to come to her aid if she ever suffers another aggression like the 1999 one would seem to me to be necessary.
Obviously it would be a good thing if they did sign up to a formal mutual defence treaty. If such a treaty were to be signed then other countries could be drawn into the new pact. That would send a signal to any globalist still out there that the world is changing and expansionism has run into a clearly defined frontier beyond which it cannot cross.
