Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic said on April 15 that the most dominant Western powers have taken a united stand against Serbia by preparing the Srebrenica genocide resolution – set for adoption at the U.N. General Assembly in May – but that what is most important is that Serbia continues to fight.

“What’s essential for the people of Serbia is that we do our job, that we can fight. Our chances are slim – Serbia is up against the most dominant global powers in the West – [so] there’s nothing to hide with regards to the resolution [being prepared] for the [U.N.] General Assembly. Everyone is sponsoring it, it’s a resolution [co-authored] by 17 countries,” Vucic told the RTS public service.

While the initiative for the resolution came jointly from Rwanda and Germany, he said, Serbia received official notice from the most developed Western countries – from the U.S., through Italy to France – that they will lobby for the adoption of the document.

Vucic added that they mentioned a compromise but that there is none to be had, since their idea of a compromise is for the resolution to make no mention of the Serbian people by name.

The president has previously stated that, should the Srebrenica resolution pass, Serbia will submit its own draft resolution on the WW2 genocides in Kragujevac, Kraljevo, Jajinci and Jasenovac every year – also without explicitly mentioning the perpetrators.

Vucic further stated that Serbia will run for non-permanent membership in the U.N. Security Council against two NATO countries from Eastern Europe, and that it will surely receive three times more votes than both of those countries combined “because Serbia is able to win three times more votes than they are.”
