“Belgrade wants to have best relations with Croatia, but won’t agree to Zagreb’s blackmail, Serbian Foreign Minister Ivica Dacic has said.

Dacic on Wednesday also called on what he referred to as ‘brothers and sisters Croats’ to all focus ‘a little bit on the future.’

Dacic said this as a response to Croatian Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic stating that ‘Serbia’s EU path leads through Croatia,’ and that there are “many issues have piled up that must be resolved in order for Serbia to join the EU.”

‘The path to the EU does not have to lead through Croatia, it can go through Hungary, Romania, Greece – (Plenkovic’s statement) is a little self-aggrandizing,’ Dacic said.” (B92)
