“I told (Head of the EU Delegation to Serbia) Michael Davenport and conference organizers, associates of French President (Francois) Hollande, that Kosovo should not be invited because they cannot even help themselves,” Mrkic said.

According to the daily’s source from the EC, Kosovo will be represented by Foreign Minister Enver Hodzaj, who will be seated behind a nameplate with the word ‘Kosovo’ followed by an asterisk, which is in line with the Belgrade-Pristina 2012 agreement on regional representation of Kosovo.

A donor conference under the motto “Rebuilding Together” will be held in Brussels on July 16 in order to mobilize further support for Serbia and Bosnia-Herzegovina after the severe floods that hit the countries in May, the European Commission, which will host the event, announced on Friday.

The objective of the conference, co-organized by France and Slovenia, is to raise funds for the recovery of Serbia and BiH.

The conference will contribute to stepping up cooperation over floods and natural disasters in the region, as well as operational coordination.

  1. Hey mirkic, as advisor & representative for Serbia your country Serbia does have the option of not attending! No one will force you to attend, as this fund conference was created on your behalf! You should welcome assistance from all country’s, not just from powerful & wealthy ones!! Do you not appreciate help from less wealthy & powerful country’s? Does Serbia’s greed have something to do with which country should attend? If so, you should be ashamed!!!

    • That’s rich coming from you! Who goes whinging and whining to USA every time they want something, who had USA come fight their battle for them, so who do you welcome assistance from? You would be nothing without USA, Serbia has no shame why should it? At least it’s friend Russia has always been a friend, how about your USA? Thought it stood for everything you did not. Serbia is Serbia. Who are you? A country made up by USA, still run by someone else.

    like serbia can help themselves hahahha but it doesn’t matter if kosovo can or cannot help themselves , that is not your business or will ever be. With statement like that, this guy is a politician????

    • Your mindless nationalism is a sign of your ignorance. Kosovo is Serbia’s business weather you recognize independence or not; if not as a autonomous province, then as a neighbor, if not for a boost to it’s own economy, then as a boost to the greater European economy.
