LJIG – Serbia is neither fascinated nor intimidated by the argumentation of Croatian officials, Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic said Sunday in the wake of Zagreb’s warnings that it might block Serbia’s EU accession talks.

“We will keep doing our job, but if they think that we are fascinated or very intimidated by their argumentation, they are terribly mistaken,” the prime minister told reporters when asked to comment on Zagreb’s signals about a potential slowdown on Serbia’s EU path.

“I admit that I do not always understand Croatian officials, and that is the harshest thing I will say about them,” he said.

Serbia is not harming anyone and wishes nothing bad to anyone, the prime minister said in Ljig, central Serbia.

“We are not doing anything to you. We do not even mention every day the 300,000 refugees that you have driven out of their homes – I guess that is the reason why you lecture us every day,” Vucic said in response to Zagreb.

“I remained silent event when (Croatian) officials allowed blackshirts to walk around downtown Zagreb, because I wanted good relations with neighbours,” Vucic said.

  1. Croatia is a big bag of wind, huffing, puffing and blowing downwind – there is a lot of noise and posturing but honestly no-one is impressed or remotely interested in Croatia or its inane ramblings – for a country who has not even been man enough to shoulder it’s part of debased activities during the Balkans war, yet gleefully midst a blaze of publicity drags a Serb from the other side of the world and acts like this is a victory, sorry what a pathetic exhibition.

    Yes, Serbia enables and attempts to pacify by ignoring the injustices against Serbs. But where does that get Serbs – just more disrespect! It shows the Croats that they can get away with anything and this encourages them to do more anti-Serb efforts.
    Even a political leader of Croatian Serbs has said that Croatia’s treatment of Serbs has become worse since it has gotten into the EU. He believes is due to EU approval of Croatia’s anti-Serb activities by being silent on in and allowing Croatia in despite its abuses and injustices towards Serbs.
    Now why does the Serbian leadership keep wanting to get into an EU which approves permanent ethnic cleansing of Serbs and violation of Serb rights? That is the question.

    But this also shows the Croats are liars and go back on their word because when Slovenia was bringing up issues against Croatia before it joined the EU, exasperated Croat politicians said to Serbia that they would never act like the Slovenes. But in fact they are worse.

    • ” because when Slovenia was bringing up issues against Croatia before it joined the EU, exasperated Croat politicians said to Serbia that they would never act like the Slovenes. But in fact they are worse.”
      How did Croatia depend on Serbia to enter EU that they said such words? Were the anti Serb activities in Croatia the reason of Slovenia’s bringing up issues towards them? It’s well known that Croatia has a history of ethnic cleansing and instituonalized racism while Slovenia didn’t have such a track record, despite getting aid from EU countries to secede.

  3. Croatia doesn’t deserve this attention, as their remarks mean literally nothing. It’s not a matter of who deserves to go where, it wouldn’t be a victory for them, yet they act like it is the biggest deal. If a country would be affected that much by one individual who does not want to be dragged again for a dragged process for too long already, taking them seriously would be a total waste of time and breath.
