Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic said during a visit to Kraljevo, on Sept. 12, that Serbia was the target of many attacks from the region, because it was ahead of the rest in terms of economic growth, promising, however, that the country would work even harder to "increase this distance."
"Serbia is facing growing pressures and increasingly stronger attacks, and the faster it grows, the stronger these attacks will be. There will be more pressure over Kosovo and Metohija, but a lot of pressure comes from the fact that Serbia is stronger today," Vucic said.
During a visit to a revamped athletic stadium where scores of citizens greeted him with flags and a large banner reading "Kraljevo Stands by Vucic," the president said that "Zagreb attacks Serbia every day, and we didn't say anything to them."
Vucic thanked the people who had come to welcome him, saying that unlike them "many prefer to stand on the sidelines and make sarcastic comments, as someone pushes forward and makes this country a better place." Vucic also appealed to the citizens of Novi Pazar, Tutin, Sjenica and others to get vaccinated.
