Statement by First Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Serbia Ivica Dacic

DACIC“Unheard-of attacks targeting Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic at the time when he has just rounded off the most successful visit to China in several decades, when the historic decision on the opening of the first chapters with the European Union was made, and on the eve of the OSCE Ministerial Council, bound to turn Serbia into the diplomatic capital of the world, testify to the fact that the purpose of this witch-hunt is to destabilize Serbia.

The response to such pressures from within the country and from abroad must be complete unity of all state institutions with the aim of protecting national and state interests.

The future of Serbia has no alternative, and the only proven successful way ahead is to continue the state’s policy pursued by the Government of Serbia and PM Vucic, who enjoys absolute support of the people of Serbia and who achieved great results in the past period. In order for Serbia to be able to emerge victorious and make headway, it has to be stable and it is for this reason that the struggle against the destabilization of Serbia is so vital for the future of the country.”
