By Serbs[edit]

  • "Serbia are a world-class team but in Davis Cup tennis the crowd are such an important factor."
    • Jeremy BatesCite error: Closing </ref> missing for <ref> tag
  • In the past quite difficult years, Greece and its citizens have proved their original motives and their belief in the expression that 'you will know who your friends are, when you need them'. Huge amounts of humanitarian aid coming from Greece to Serbia and Montenegro, innumerous efforts to collect funds for rebuilding our country, hospitality extended to our children – mainly children of refugees – for a short or a long period of time in Greek families, all this is just a token of the Greek moves of true friendship and solidarity that we will never forget. Even today, as we speak, Greece realizes, being a true friend of ours, our goals and priorities and is helping us to achieve them. [...] The strong, historic and friendly relation between Serbia-Montenegro and Greece constitutes the most important foundation to improve any form of cooperation in the field of politics, economy, culture, sports or education...


  • Greece and Serbia are two countries linked by ancient and inextricable bonds. Our relationship is lost in the depths of time. Serbian culture and religion were greatly influenced by our common roots in the great civilisation of Byzantium."
    • Dimitrios K. Katsoudas Secretary General for European Affairs , 3 May 2007[www.mfa.gr/www.mfa.gr/Articles/el-GR/03052007_1526_alp.htm] Serbia on the Road to Europe; Problems and Perspective
  • "As a Greek I swear eternal friendship with the Serb people."
  • "As Hellenic Nationalists, we express complete support with our Serb brothers, which was genuinely expressed in the past and we declare our solidarity in the common struggle for National Dignity and Sovereignty. Kosovo is Serbia!"
    • Golden Dawn Statement [posted on the Serbian Consulate in Thessaloniki], 1 March 2008, Thessaloniki[3]
  • "I am among friends. And this friendship of ours [between Greeks and Serbs] has been proved in practice. And we shall do this in the future as well with words and with deeds."
  • "We have more in common than differences. The Greek people stood by our side more than any other nation. Up there we do not say the Greeks, we say our brothers. Whatever happens here – let's hope the time will never come – they will be by your side in no time. They are yours. You have won their brotherhood. They are so proud for my Greek origin both mine and my husband's. For the fact that he chose a Greek woman too, like his grandfather did.
