Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic said on June 13 that talks with Pristina in Brussels would not be easy and that things were not rosy, but that now was not the time for big words, but for a firm stance. He went on to say that the moment called for showing commitment to the dialog, looking toward the future, talking and maintaining peace, even though all that was harder.
Asked by Pink TV to comment on announcements by Kosovo Premier Albin Kurti that Kosovo would sue Serbia for genocide, Vucic said the ethnic Albanian leadership was attacking Serbia on a daily basis.
"Kurti is now repeating this every day like Donald Duck, and my message to him is -- stop threatening and go ahead and do it," Vucic said.
He added that there was "no concern" that the European Union would again not open chapters in talks with Serbia in June, because everything that the EU requested had been done.
Vucic said further that it was his obligation to protect former Serbian president Boris Tadic because Serbia needed to be a country of decent people where different opinions were allowed. In the wake of Ratko Mladic's sentencing, graffiti appeared in Belgrade and Banjaluka calling for the death of former Serbian president Boris Tadic. Vucic called on the authorities to find the person responsible as quickly as possible.
