Balkans |  Vucic: Serbia will not watch attacks on Kosovo Serbs restrained

A massive rally was held in support of the government and President Aleksandar Vucic in Belgrade, the capital of Serbia.

In Serbia, where anti-government protests were shaken by armed attacks one after another, supporters of the government and President Aleksandar Vucic organized a massive rally in the capital, Belgrade.

Citizens who came to Belgrade by bus from all over the country since the morning showed great interest in the rally titled “Serbia Hope”, which kicked off this evening in front of the Serbian Parliament, despite the heavy rain.

Addressing the crowd, Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic said that the only goal of the politicians, who took advantage of the tragedy of armed attacks, is to overthrow him and the Serbian government.

The Serbian leader, who said he would continue to fight for every second that peace would last in Kosovo, said Serbia would not pursue attacks on Kosovo Serbs with their hands tied. Vucic announced that the meeting of the National Security Council will be held immediately after the assembly because of the tension in northern Kosovo.

Vucic announces his resignation from the party leadership

Vucic, who said he selflessly served his country and people for 11 years and led the Serbian Progressive Party (SNS) for 11 years, has announced that he will leave the party leadership as of tomorrow. Vucic stated that he would remain a member of SNS, although he would hand over the leadership of the party. Vucic said that he would never address a crowd of this size for the second time in his life, “Don’t worry, I’m not going anywhere.” I will keep fighting for Serbia, he said. Two to three years, which will affect the fate of the country.

Dacic: “We will not abandon Vucic”

Speaking at the rally, Serbian Foreign Minister Ivica Dacic said that the recent mass attacks had been used for political purposes, that they would not allow the opposition to seize power through street demonstrations and that they would not abandon President Aleksandar Vucic.

Milorad Dodik, the president of Republika Srpska, one of the two entities in Bosnia and Herzegovina, also addressed the crowd at the rally. He stated that they want a stable and strong Serbia and that they support Aleksandar Vucic for that, and Dodik ended his words with “Long live Serbia, long live Republika Srpska, long live Russia”.

Support from Hungary

In support of the demonstration, Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto, in his speech in Serbian, said that Serbia and Hungary are brother countries of President Aleksandar Vucic. Szijjarto noted that Serbia and Hungary have undergone similar tests and that both countries are under pressure from the international community. The attacks will not stop in the future. We Hungarians and Serbs are under attack because we have taken our national path and succeeded. But we will continue to build a strong Serbia and a strong Hungary. Continue to help and support your boss.”

Anti-government protests in Serbia, which began after the mass killings, will continue on Saturday.
