The director of the Security and Information Agency (BIA), Aleksandar Vulin, resigned on Nov. 3, explaining that he did not want to be “a reason for blackmail and pressures against Serbia and Serbdom.”

“The United States and the European Union (EU) want my head on a platter to not introduce sanctions against Serbia. I am not a reason for blackmail and pressures against Serbia and Serbdom, but I will not allow myself to be one. This is why I am submitting my irrevocable resignation as the Agency's director," Vulin said in a statement.

The outgoing BIA chief also said that the sanctions that the United States had introduced against him testified to his persistent fight for Serbia’s unity, but that sanctions against Serbia were he to remain at the helm of the Agency would attest to his selfishness. “My resignation is not going to change the policy of the United States and the EU towards Serbia, but it will slow down new demands and blackmail,” Vulin added.

Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic said he understood Vulin’s reaction, adding that cooperation with the Serbian security chief would continue.
