MFA RSFollowing a matter done currently by Ambassador of Ukraine in a Republic of Serbia Oleksandr Aleksandrovych for a B92 website and for a O2 TV channel, where he claimed, inter alia, that a family between Serbia and Ukraine had been disregarded by Serbia’s opinion “against Ukraine”, referring to a Resolution on a tellurian rights conditions in Crimea, and his matter to a outcome that he has been watchful for 14 months for an assembly with a Serbian Foreign Minister, a Ministry of Foreign Affairs wishes to indicate to a following facts:

When a offer concerning UNESCO membership of a supposed Republic of Kosovo was put to a opinion in 2015, a Ukrainian commission was not present, that was in approach transgression of a critical interests of a Republic of Serbia. Moreover, Ukraine supports a proposals put brazen by Western countries associated to a change in a charge of UNMIK, and a change in a energetic of UNSC meetings clinging to a work of UNMIK, that Serbia opposes fiercely.

During a OSCE Chairmanship, both a Republic of Serbia and Minister Dacic showed joining to a pacific allotment of a Ukrainian crisis, that Minister Klimkin described in commendable terms, too.

From a commencement of his goal in a Republic of Serbia, a Ambassador of Ukraine has been invariably creation undiplomatic and unsuitable assessments about Serbia’s unfamiliar process and a officials. The latest such examples embody his talk for Radio Free Europe of 28 Oct 2016 (“Serbia Cannot Have It Both Ways”), a one given for a Blic daily antiquated 16 Nov 2016 (“Putin Will Sell You Out”), and a new talk claiming that Russia is misusing Serbia in sequence to wreak massacre and unleash a fight in a Balkans.

When unfamiliar member go over a horizon of a Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations, one of a slight measures practical in a tactful use is to revoke contacts to a operative level. Therefore, a Ambassador of Ukraine has had several meetings during a Ministry of Foreign Affairs in a march of 2017 during a Assistant Minister and Deputy Assistant Minister level.

Reciprocity is another generally supposed tactful principle. Having in mind that Ambassador of a Republic of Serbia in Ukraine Rade Bulatovic has never had an assembly with a Ukrainian Foreign Minister Klimkin and that a Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine attends a functions hosted by a Embassy of a Republic of Serbia during a Chief of Protocol level, a Republic of Serbia has conjunction a requirement nor a reason to act differently.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs regrets to note that Ambassador Aleksandrovych has settled that his Ministry’s position is “almost identical” with his own, though but stays committed to overcoming points of feud and to compelling shared relations.
