    Serbian Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic sent a letter to the parliament with a request to dismiss Defense Minister Bratislav Gasic over his sexist remarks, a statement published on the official government website said on Saturday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — In December 2015, Gasic told a reporter from B92 TV that he loves female journalists who "kneel easily."

    "Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic informed government members at a government session today that he had sent a motion to the Serbian parliament to hold an extraordinary session on 5 February in order to examine the dismissal of Minister of Defence Bratislav Gasic," the statement said.

    The statement added that Vucic thanked Gasic for good results in increasing the country's combat readiness, but added that his public remarks were unacceptable.
