Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic has said that he will leave for New York on May 20 with a delegation to fight a resolution on Srebrenica which is on the U.N. General Assembly's agenda this week, calling Montenegro's amendments to the proposed resolution "foul play."

"We are going to New York on May 20. We will spend five days in New York. I am going to have many meetings, and, on May 23, we will fight all together," Vucic told Pink TV on May 19. He said only "those who area ready to fight in every possible way" should join the delegation.

The sponsors of the proposed resolution on Srebrenica have finalized the wording of the document, which the U.N. General Assembly is due to discuss on May 23. The preamble reads that "criminal responsibility according to international law for the crime of genocide is individualized."

The sponsors of the proposed text were Germany and Rwanda, while the Montenegrin government has submitted amendments to the draft. Vucic said Serbia would know late on May 23 local time who its friends were globally, while everyone else was a partner. "It will be completely clear to us. Whoever does not vote, or abstains, or is against, is our friend, and we will celebrate their flags and cherish and nurture our friendship, while maintaining proper relations with everyone else. They are important as partners, but we will know very well that they did not join us," Vucic said.
