The Socialist Party of Serbia leader, Ivica Dacic, said on March 24, 22 years after a NATO bombing campaign against the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia started, that the bombing should not be forgotten and that by remembering we would honor our victims.

Dacic, also the Serbian speaker, said in an interview with the Pink TV that Serbia "defended its territorial integrity" in 1999, and that the Albanians "staged a humanitarian disaster to serve a political agenda, in which they succeeded."

Dacic said that at that point Serbia could not accept the terms offered to it during internationally mediated negotiations with the Albanians in Kosovo, explaining that "no one would accept those terms today either." The Kosovo Albanians wanted "to have a referendum after two years."

According to the Serbian speaker, the U.N. Security Council Resolution 1244 that ended the bombing of Yugoslavia "had to be accepted," but "whatever was good about it has never been implemented."
