In addition to receiving an award for his humanitarian work in the country, Seagal was asked if he would train their forces in the Japanese martial art of Aikido, in case they are ever under siege.
Dear Mr @Schwarzenegger, after the arrival of Mr Steven Seagal in Serbia to train our special forces, please come too. We're waiting for you— Srećko Lj. M. (@LovelyJubbly971) November 30, 2015
The 63-year-old is a 7th Dan black belt in Aikido and has a large fan base in Serbia.
Belgrade mayor Sinisa Mali told reporters that the Serbian people were eager to have Seagal back on their soil again.
"When you have such a famous star coming to Serbia, who loves our country and our people, our desire is to have him back again," Mali said.
Seagal has yet to make an executive decision on the job offer. It's not only Serbia's leaders that Seagal has met. The actor is on friendly terms with President Putin and is frequently in Russia.
