People's Party leader Vuk Jeremic has described Serbia's support for Albania's recently accorded non-permanent seat in the U.N. Security Council as an "extremely imprudent step."

In an open letter to Serbian Foreign Minister Nikola Selakovic, Jeremic said Serbia "has sent a message indicating a lack of concern for taking a strong stand on respecting its sovereignty and territorial integrity in future discussions in that forum," the party said in a press release on June 27.

Jeremic, a former foreign minister of Serbia and one-time chairperson of the U.N. General Assembly, invited Selakovic again to a "foreign-policy duel" on state TV to show the people that it is possible to lead "a substantiated dialog  between people who respect one another in spite of political differences."

He recalled that, on Selakovic's instructions, Serbia's standing representative to the U.N. supported on June 11 Albania in becoming one of the ten non-permanent members of the U.N. Security Council in 2022 and 2023.
