Serbia will be ever stronger, Vucic says

Serbia will be ever stronger, Vucic says
Serbia is not going to be weaker in terms of economy, military and politics – on the contrary, it will be ever stronger, president Aleksandar Vucic said on Monday evening commenting the latest developments in Croatia and Kosovo.

Earlier that day, Kosovo police forces have arrested a Serb Bogdan Mitrovic suspecting him for the war crimes. According to Vucic, the arrest was the case of intimidating that should prevent Serbs who used to live in Kosovo to come back.

Simultaneously, foreign ministry’s high official Veljko Odalovic has abandoned the meeting about missing persons in Zagreb, after Croatian official said that “Serbia is the center of all evil in the region”.

“I called Odalovic by phone and told him that it was good that he has protected the dignity of Serbia. But I told him that he should react even harsher and say everything he thinks about crimes against Serbs in different places (in Croatia), the president explained.

Vucic said that “for us situation is very complicated because some people think that every moment is an occasion to outburst against Serbs, especially when they have no arguments for their policy”.

What happened at the meeting in Croatia inspires Vucic, as he said, to wonder what kind of Serbia would be good enough for “some”. “Is it powerless, weak Serbia on its knees, or they would be satisfied if Serbia would simply does not exist. But Serbia is not going to be weaker in terms of economy, military and politics – on the contrary, it will be ever stronger”, he explained.

Serbia has nothing to be shamed off especially its history, unlike the others, Vucic concluded.
