Serbian Prime Minister Ana Brnabic said on Feb. 13 that the unstable situation in the region does not suit Serbia and that what is happening at the moment should not be. She added that all disputes should be solved in a diplomatic way, cautiously, and that Serbia will protect the rights of the Serbs living in the region, which are now threatened.
“In order for us to continue to develop and grow, we have to have a stable region,” the prime minster told journalists. Of all the Balkan countries, she pointed out, stability suits Serbia the most because the implemented reforms have yielded good results.
According to her, the region is small and any instability affects Serbia, too, because fewer people would want to invest here.
Serbia, Brnabic added, after many years, has finally entered a phase in which it has upped its creditability, and any kind of volatility may harm it.
“Any kind of instability will affect our growth and development. That’s why we, President Aleksandar Vucic and the entire cabinet, are trying to send out messages that are both thoughtful and tempered, so that stability is further ensured,” she said, adding that Serbia is trying to be responsible when it comes to the protection of the Serb population outside its borders, as that is its “constitutional obligation, duty and wish.”
Brnabic also recalled that Vucic had invited the Serbs from Montenegro and Republika Srpska for talks to be held on Feb. 15.
