President Aleksandar Vucic says he hopes that ‘it will not come to war’ and that ‘a solution will be found for Kosovo.’
Vucic spoke after Kosovo PM Haradinaj said that a partition of Kosovo, as far as he was concerned, ‘meant war.’
Nevertheless, as the president pointed out, any delays would have negative consequences on other issues.
Vucic said this comment by Haradinaj was “neither the first nor the last” of its kind, and expressed hope that things would never come to war, but instead to some sort of solution.
‘Since we can see the statements of Hashim Thaci – it’s impossible that you (Pristina) talk and demand everything, and say, ‘we are waiting for an answer’.. It’s not an agreement if you tell us – everything is ours, and you just recognize us. There will be no agreement there,’ Vucic said. ” (B92)

“Serbia’s Defence Minister Aleksandar Vulin, commenting on the statement made this week by President of Croatia Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic about Croats and Albanians, told the press in Belgrade on Saturday he regretted that Croatian politicians were ‘unable to get rid of their complex towards Serbia and Serbs.’
‘The only criterion for you to be brothers with Croatia is that you participated in the killing of Serbs. I regret that this is so and that Croatian politicians are unable to find some other way to connect with their surroundings and find some other value to call someone a brother,’ Vulin said in his comment on Grabar-Kitarovic’s statement, made during her visit to Albania this week, that Croats and Albanians are “brothers in arms.”
Vulin said that ‘participating in the killing of Serbs’ was not something someone should be proud of. ‘I regret that this is so and that Croatian politicians are unable to get rid of this deep complex towards Serbia.'” (N1)
