“Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic was displeased by the way he was treated during World War I centenary commemorations in France, Serbian media reported on November 12.

At the November 11 Armistice ceremony in Paris, which brought together leaders from numerous countries, Kosovar President Hashim Thaci was behind the leaders of France, Germany, Russia, and the United States, while Vucic was placed in a separate stand on the opposite side.

Serbian media quoted Vucic as saying , ‘You can imagine how I felt,’ and adding that he had ‘a lump in the throat.’

‘I couldn’t believe what I was seeing before me, knowing the sacrifice that the Serbian people made in World War I,’ he said.” (RFE/RL)
