Serbian Foreign Minister Ivica Dacic said on Feb. 11 that the European Union's resolution on the elections in Serbia represented a political pamphlet which did not obligate other institutions to act, but that it had left the bitter taste of a stain on Serbia.
In an interview published by the Kurir newspaper, Dacic said the opposition's actions post-election were a strategy to avoid admitting "a bad failure in elections" and "to obtain as many advantages as possible from another lost battle."
"In any democratic state, elections are a solely internal matter and no one can interfere from the outside. No state with a modicum of dignity would allow that," Dacic said.
Commenting on a session of the U.N. Security Council in the U.S. that included Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic, Dacic said that it had shown that Serbia was esteemed internationally, that its positions had weight and were respected even by Pristina's greatest supporters.
