In addition to the Kosovo issue, the Serbian Parliament session on Thursday also focused on many other issues such as the Telekom Serbia company, the United Media company and its channels, including N1. During the discussion Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic accused United Group co-owner Dragan Solak of wanting to “wreck Serbia.”

People’s Party MP Miroslav Aleksic told the Parliament that the main problem is that state-owned Telekom Serbia is fighting against United Group because free media operate within the Group.

“Go on, write, now you are going to say that I am defending Solak. No, but you are afraid of every free word spoken in Serbia so you could more easily manipulate the Serbian citizens and mislead them,” said Aleksic.

President Vucic replied by saying that the point is in the desire to destroy Telekom Serbia, “while Solak and those who want to wreck Serbia can destroy Serbia like they did in the past period.”

“And Vucic is bad, because Vucic is protecting the state, and a state company and not letting such people destroy a state company. If that makes me bad, I accept and admit it,” said the Serbian President.

An extraordinary Serbian Parliament session began Thursday at which Serbian President Vucic presented a report on the negotiation process with Pristina.

The report was formally submitted to the MPs by the Serbian Government, its Office for Kosovo and Metohija (the official name for what the Serbian authorities consider to be the country’s southern province), and by the little-known Office for the Coordination of Affairs in the Process of Negotiation with the Provisional Institutions of Self-Government in Pristina.

Following Vucic’s address the debate unfolded and an incident took place in which there was pushing and shoving and an exchange of accusations between the ruling party and opposition MPs in front of the bench the president was seated in.
