Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic responded to the neighboring countries because of their vote on Kosovo’s membership in the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe.
Stressing that there will be deep and fundamental changes in Serbia’s foreign policy, Vucic said: “Why do we defend its territorial integrity at any cost when someone acts against our territorial integrity.”
Vucic, who also responded to Bosnia and Herzegovina’s abstention, said, “I have expressed my support for the territorial integrity of Bosnia and Herzegovina 70,000 times. But if you are hesitant, don’t come to the press conference and ask me whatever you can think of. I will be reluctant to comment on anything.” From now on. It’s not about anger, it’s about self-respect. There is respect for the people represented, and most importantly for what is sacred to us, which is Serbia.”
Vucic stated that Montenegro’s vote for Kosovo would also affect bilateral relations, but changes in policy would not go beyond the principle of reciprocity.
Serbia’s foreign minister, Ivica Dacic, also announced that Serbia would change its policy towards its neighbors. “All of this will influence our future behaviour,” Dacic said. Montenegro, for example, could have abstained and taken a more or less respectful approach to our problems. Montenegro supported Kosovo’s request. When they need our vote, they should not expect a positive approach from us.”
Serbian Prime Minister Ana Brnabić has canceled her visit to Greece because of her vote on Kosovo.
