Construction Minister denies signing a contract with Jared Kushner

Serbia’s Minister of Construction, Transport and Infrastructure, Goran Vesic, said on Sunday that the Serbian government has not signed a contract stipulating the revitalization of the former Army General Staff building in downtown Belgrade, which was partially destroyed during NATO bombing in 1999.

Vesic dismissed as lies the allegations of certain opposition politicians that the government will give the complex to an American company headed by the son-in-law of former U.S. President Donald Trump, Jared Kushner, for free.

„Serbian government is determined that the ruins do not stand for the next 25 years and that we revitalize that complex. We have not signed a contract as yet, as negotiations are underway with several companies. If and when we sign a contract, we will inform the public and that agreement will be made public”, Vesic told Pink TV.

According to him, even if the Serbian government reaches an agreement regarding the future use of the building, it will insist that a memorial complex be built in that area.

„It will be arranged by the Government of Serbia and there will be a reminder of what happened“, Vesic said.

Jared Kushner previously told the American media that his company Affinity Partners, is planning to make real estate investments in Albania and Serbia.

In addition to the two hospitality complexes on the Albanian coast, Kushner stated that his company planned to construct a building complex that would consist of a luxury hotel, 1,500 apartments and a museum in the place of the bombed General Staff building in Belgrade.
