Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic said on May 14 that certain Western nations were "hypocritical" when denying the possibility of redrawing borders, and that Serbia was only guided by international law and the United Nations Charter and that all else "is false and non-existent."

"These false principles serve to impose decisions upon us. I have no problem with that, as long as you come out and say 'You Serbs have been defeated, we have crushed you and you have to obey,' and then we'll think it over. That isn't exactly a fair approach, but at least it would be honest," Vucic said in a joint address with Slovenian President Borut Pahor.

Vucic said this was his response to messages from certain countries that there could be no change of borders, noting that this did not apply to Pahor, who "is a sincere friend to Serbia," but to "those who talk of principles and have never stuck with a single one."

In a statement for Prva TV, Vucic said he would beseech NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg to prevent the withdrawal of KFOR and UNMIK from Kosovo. Vucic said there were two options in Kosovo and Metohija -- "for KFOR and UNMIK to withdraw and for the U.S. Bondstill base to remain," or "Bondstill to cease to exist, which would mean that the Albanian military would take the administrative line with Serbia proper.
