Serbian Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic presented on Tuesday the Serbian passport to U.S. actor, musician and martial arts instructor Steven Seagal.
Seagal was granted Serbian citizenship a few days ago, and the decision about it was announced in the Official Gazette of the Republic of Serbia.
Seagal has recently made two trips to Serbia, where he met with Serbia’s highest-level officials.
He also visited a children’s shelter in Belgrade, gave out New Year’s presents to children and took part in New Year’s Eve celebration performing with his band in front of the National Assembly of Belgrade.
Following an earlier meeting he had with Serbian Prime Minister Vucic, Seagal said he would do “everything possible to promote Serbia” worldwide and expressed a wish to establish an Aikido school in Belgrade, according to a government statement.
