Vucic: I am going to Brussels to try to maintain peace

Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic said on Monday he would travel to Brussels for the upcoming round of Belgrade-Pristina dialogue to try to maintain peace and stability and added that this was his only objective.

Speaking to reporters after a display of new weapons and military equipment produced by the national defense industry for the Serbian Armed Forces, Vucic said Serbia was not threatening anyone, but merely wanted to ensure respect for international rules and international legal norms, from UN SC Resolution 1244 to the Brussels Agreement.

“Those are agreements that are valid and in effect and they must be respected and implemented,” Vucic noted.

When asked to comment on a recent EU press release equally blaming Belgrade and Pristina for an escalation of tensions and incendiary rhetoric in Kosovo, Vucic said he had no comment to make.

“That is for the best,” he added.
