The leader of the Socialist Party of Serbia (SPS) Ivica Dacic lent full support to President Aleksandar Vucic a day before his scheduled meeting with Kosovo Prime Minister Albin Kurti.
Dacic, a close ally of Vucic and his Serbian Progressive Party (SNS), said the talks in Brussels are of crucial importance for Serbia and the Serb people. “In my name and the name of the SPS I am offering full support to the President of the Republic of Serbia Aleksandar Vucic in these difficult times for our country and our people. I am certain that Aleksandar Vucic will maintain the peace and protect our state and national interests in the best possible way at the coming meetings in Brussels,” Dacic is quoted as saying in a written statement.
Dacic called European Union officials to “clearly show that Pristina does not respect any agreement from Brussels, including the Brussels Agreement by refusing to form the Community of Serb Municipalities and is dangerously jeopardizing the peace with its unilateral decisions”.
“The outcome of the meetings in Brussels will define the development of the situation in Kosovo and is of crucial importance to Serbia and the Serb people which is why political subjects in Serbia should be united in their support to President Vucic in these days when peace or war is practically being decided in Kosovo,” the SPS leader said.
Dacic served as foreign minister and head of government before being replaced by Vucic. His latest job was parliament speaker.
